As we’re looking to organise the calendar of events in 2017, Earth Hour in March is definitely on the agenda. WWF have launched an exciting Earth Hour competition ahead of Earth Hour 2017, and we’re encouraging all of you to take part!
This Earth Hour, together with People’s Postcode Lottery, WWF are on a nationwide search to find unsung heroes who help protect our brilliant planet.
The Earth Hour Heroes competition invites people to nominate themselves, or others, if their actions are helping to save the planet. Whether it’s in the community, at home, or in the workplace, our heroes will be individuals who deserve recognition for going the extra mile to help the environment and inspire others.
There are three categories of the Earth Hour Heroes competition:
Community hero: We’re looking for an individual who has brought their community together to help make a real difference to the environment. It could be a project that’s delivering great results, or an example of going the extra mile to make their community more climate-friendly.
Lifestyle hero: We’re looking for an individual who is embracing a climate-friendly lifestyle, and is inspiring others to do the same. It could be green initiatives in their home, a commitment to spreading the word, or innovative ideas they’ve come up with to help the environment.
Workplace hero: We’re looking for an individual that stands out in the workplace for their climate-friendly thinking and ability to inspire their colleagues. It could be a cultural change they’ve introduced, a project that’s making a real difference, or going above and beyond to help their company be as sustainable as possible.
