Green Heart Community Awards 2012

After two very successful Green Heart Awards in 2010 and 2011, Huntingdonshire District Council is once again looking for applications for this year’s Green Heart Community Awards.

Other people’s projects can be both inspirational and motivational and that’s why we want to find out more about the excellent environmental community projects happening in Huntingdonshire.

We want to find out about what has motivated the people of Huntingdonshire to take environmental action, what has been helpful to make their projects successful and what challenges they have faced and overcome along the way.

These awards recognise those community groups and individuals who are getting together and making a real change in their community by reducing their environmental footprint. From energy projects, waste and recycling schemes to sustainable growing schemes and environmental awareness raising events, to getting ideas off the ground, there are people out there who are making a difference, people with bright, innovative and scalable ideas.

From Monday 20 February, you can nominate yourself, a community group or even your local school under one of the seven main categories:

Best primary school
Best secondary school/college
Young green achiever of the year
Green volunteer of the year
Best wildlife or nature initiative
Best energy saving initiative
Best waste, reuse or recycling initiative

An awards ceremony will be held where four short-listed nominations for each category will be invited to attend, with winners being announced at the event

Representatives from community groups may nominate themselves or be put forward by a third party, and anyone can enter as long as they can demonstrate that they have managed, or been involved with an environmental project that has engaged and benefited their local community

Councillor Darren Tysoe, executive councillor for the Environment said: “The Green Heart Community Awards are a chance for us to reward the people of Huntingdonshire who have been making a really difference to improving the environment of our district. We want to hear from schools, businesses, community group and individuals about the inspirational projects that have been taking place over the past 12 months. Once again, the green carpet will be rolled out for the awards ceremony in June”
