With entries and nominations open, the biennial Sustainable Environment Awards are designed to reward the efforts of people helping to protect and enhance Auckland’s environment and heritage.
Councillor Wayne Walker, chair of the council’s Environment and Sustainability Forum, says individuals, schools and groups are welcome to enter.
"We want to give Aucklanders the chance to be celebrated for their good work. Whether it’s a school implementing an energy-saving programme, or a group creating an organic community garden, we encourage them to enter.”
This year’s award categories are:
Individuals – recognising sustainable environment leadership and commitment
Sustainable schools – recognising commitment and practical action by schools and tertiary institutions within their campus and local community
Youth – recognising commitment and practical action by people aged under 25 years
Sustainable communities – recognising sustainable environment achievement by a community group or family
Supreme – recognising the stand-out project across all categories.
Entries close on May 9 and the winners will be announced at a ceremony in Auckland on July 30, 2012.
