英国皇家(亚洲)协会“亚洲杰出人物特别奖”

The Royal Society for Asian Affairs

Special Award Citation

2016年3月23日,英国皇家(亚洲)协会理事会评选出来的2016年“亚洲杰出人物特别奖”得主是:

The Council of The Royal Society for Asian affairs resolved at its meeting on 23 March 2016 that a Special Award should be make to:

威廉.林赛(O.B.E.)

William Lindesay (O.B.E.)

威廉.林赛(O.B.E.)毕业于英国利物浦大学。1987年他完成了徒步中国长城1535英里,因而被中国新华通讯社誉为“探索中国万里长城最成功的外国人”。自1994年起,他着手研究万里长城北京地段,并通过中国媒体的报道,让人们意识到中国的长城面临的危机。他组织了两次登长城捡拾垃圾的活动之后,中国政府有关部门授予他“友谊奖”。

Mr William Lindesay O.B.E. is a graduate of Liverpool University. In 1987 he made, in the words of China’s official Xinhua News Agency, “the most successful foreign exploration of the Great Wall” when he followed a 1,535 mile solo journey on foot along its length. From 1994 he undertook systematic research of the Great Wall in the Beijing region and brought the Chinese media’s attention to the fact that the environment around the wall was degrading Consequently he organised two major clean up missions, which resulted in the Chinese government awarding him their “Friendship Medal”.

2001年林赛先生在香港注册成立了国际长城之友协会,旨在协助中国有关政府部门资助和保护长城。鉴于此因,威廉.林赛在2006年获得O.B.E.帝国勋章,第二年他又在中国获得“十大志愿者称号”和“薪火相传杰出人物称号”。

Lindesay founded the “International Friends of The Great Wall” in Hong Kong in 2001, to assist Chinese authorities in their funding and efforts to preserve the wall. For this work, William Lindesay was awarded the O.B.E. in 2006. Two years later he received awards in China, including “Top Ten Volunteers in Beijing” and “Top Ten National Defenders of Cultural Heritage”.

Lindesay has written many articles and reports, his books include:”Alone on The Great Wall”, “Images of Asia: The Great Wall”, “The Great Wall Explained” and in Mandarin, “The Great Wall of Two Williams”.

林赛先生发表过许多文章和报告,并撰写有多部与长城相关的著作,其中包括:《独步长城》、《亚洲印象:万里长城》、《万里长城百题问答》和《两个威廉与长城的故事》(中文版)。

Lindesay has lectured about the Great wall in China, the USA,  Hong Kong, Germany and Great Britain. In 2008 he staged exhibitions in Beijing and at the western and eastern ends of the wall and along its route. These were followed by a television documentary for the National Geographic television channel. Subsequently, Lindesay led two pioneering expeditions with fellow researchers to investigate “The Wall of Genghis Khan” in Mongolia.

1998年协会理事会通过决议,开始设置和颁发“特别奖”:“表彰那些在亚洲做出杰出和不寻常贡献的人。这些贡献包括:为人类的服务、对科学的贡献、对知识扩展、创新而贡献个体的聪明才智和资源、对文化事业做出贡献表现出来的努力、勇气和忍耐力”。 威廉.林赛研究、保护和增进中国长城知识方面的努力,符合上述多种标准。

The Society’s “Special Award” was instituted in 1998 by resolution of Council to “be made in recognition of exceptionally outstanding and unusual achievement in Asia… in any sphere, including service to humanity, contribution to science, the extension of knowledge, innovation, individual ingenuity and resource, personal effort and courage, endurance, fortitude or contribution to culture.” Mr William Lindesay fulfils many, if not all, of these criteria for his efforts to help conserve, protect and increase knowledge about The Great Wall of China.  

以上奖项是根据协会理事会2016年做出的决议颁发的。

In accordance with the Council’s resolution, this Award is make in 2016.
