The Green Awards is nearly here
Each year, the Global Green Awards aim to highlight pertinent topical issues within the overall framework of sustainability. This year, the UN declared International Year of Forests sets a perfect backdrop to the awards ceremony, ahead of the COP17 talks in Durban. Coupled with the Natural History Museum as the chosen venue this year, we aim to highlight the significance of nature, forests and biodiversity.
This year also marks the second ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ and the inaugural ‘Best Green International Celebrity Award’. The glittering green event will be hosted by nature TV presenter Phillipa Forrester and sustainable finance consultant, Leo Johnson.
The International Green Awards ceremony will welcome the who’s who of sustainability and eco-glitterati on the awards night – 24th November 2011. Don’t miss your chance to attend this year’s spectacular sustainability gala!
The International Green AwardsTM gala also emphasises on knowledge building, as exemplified by our speakers for the night. This year, our key note speaker, UNEP Acting Communications Director & Spokesperson, Nick Nuttall will underscore the importance of forests. Our second speaker, Peter Byck, Director & Producer of the movie ‘Carbon Nation’ will further emphasise on the need for ‘solutions’.
