Who Are The Green Heroes?

Only One Week Left to Nominate Green Heroes
There is only one week left to nominate green heroes for the Wales Green List. The Wales-wide search to identify 52 champions, deserving of recognition for tacking sustainability and climate change, ends on 14 September.

Despite the word ‘green,’ the search is not limited to environmental champions. Rather, the list seeks to identify people who are simply making a difference by working towards building a better, more sustainable Wales.

Nominees could be tackling environmental and social issues in their own village or town, at a regional, national or international level. And candidates can range from artists to politicians, from campaigners to company directors, from business leaders to community groups, staff members or project promoters.

The Green List will feature 52 green champions – one for every week of the year – selected by a panel of people from business, media, the voluntary sector, social enterprise and sustainable development fields.

Helen Nelson, Executive Director of Cynnal Cymru – Sustain Wales, said:

“There are so many amazing people doing great work to ensure a sustainable future for Wales and it’s time to recognise their efforts. We are searching for people who are making a positive impact on their communities, the environment and, ultimately, other people’s lives.”
Visit www.sustainwales.com to find out more and nominate. The closing date for nominations is 14 September 2009.
