The 2016 Intelligently Green Awards aim to celebrate green projects and activities around Whychavon that also benefit the community or save money.
About the Awards
During the end part of 2015, world leaders gathered in Paris to negotiate a new agreement that would help to reduce the effects climate change. Organisers of the Intelligently Green Awards, Whychavon District Council and Transition Evesham Vale, highlight that we all have a part to play in protecting the environment around us.
The Award scheme is about recognising and promoting local, intelligently green activities – things that not only have a positive impact on the environment, but also have community or financial benefits.
Who is eligible to enter?
You are able to nominate yourself, an organisation you are involved with, or someone else for an Intelligently Green Award. The five categories are:
