“There are many people out there who are creating a better future for our Island, protecting and enhancing the environment, lowering greenhouse gas emissions, adapting to climate change and helping us reducing waste. Let’s celebrate them”

– Environment, Water and Climate Change Minister Natalie Jameson

To be eligible for an award, the individual, organization or school must be instrumental in identifying, reducing, solving or avoiding an environmental problem; demonstrating consistently responsible environmental management practices; and/or promoting public awareness, understanding and active concern for the protection and enhancement of the environment. The review committee will also consider the nominees’ long-term service and commitment, voluntary contributions and innovative approaches.

Schools are eligible for a financial award of $3,000 to further support their environmental learning.

Award recipients will be chosen by a review committee composed of members of the Environmental Advisory Council.
