PEC gives three awards each year, two for an individual and the other to an organization. Individuals are eligible for the William Gibson Eco-Justice Award or the Emerging Earth Care Leader Award (for 18-30 year olds). Congregations, governing bodies, ecumenical agencies, and Presbyterian-related entities may be nominated for the Restoring Creation Award.
The Eco-Justice Award is named for the Rev. William Gibson. Rev. Gibson was a founding member of PEC, author and eco-justice advocate, and editor of the book, “Eco-Justice-The Unfinished Journey.” Rev. Gibson was a leading member of the Presbyterian Eco-Justice Task Force, Presbyterians for Restoring Creation, and the Eco-Justice Working Group of the National Council of Churches.
