EN­VI­RON­MENT AWARDS

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Nom­i­na­tions are open for the 27th an­nual Green Rib­bon Awards. The awards recog­nise the out­stand­ing work to pro­tect and en­hance the en­vi­ron­ment by in­di­vid­u­als, com­mu­ni­ties and or­gan­i­sa­tions. Par­m­jeet Par­mar, Na­tional List MP based in Mt Roskill, said fi­nal­ists would be in­vited to a spe­cial awards ban­quet night in Par­lia­ment. The 10 cat­e­gories in­clude bio­di­ver­sity, re­silience to cli­mate change, wastem­i­nimi­sa­tion, car­ing for fresh water, coastal and ocean pro­tec­tion, leadership, phi­lan­thropy and part­ner­ships, and the supreme win­ner cat­e­gory. There will also be an ad­di­tional award for out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions to the pro­tec­tion of our unique flora and fauna, Par­mar said. Go to green­rib­bonawards.org.nz for more in­for­ma­tion.
