As I mentioned earlier in the week, The Observer Ethical Awards, in association with Ecover, recently launched, with a chance for under 18s involved in ethical initiatives to win £6000* from Ecover.
The awards also recognise the valuable work done by teachers, parents or youth group leaders working with potential Young Green Champions. Those who nominate projects from the groups they work with or who encourage Young Green Champions to enter could win a three night stay for a family of four at The Coppice Woodland in Hertfordshire.
The annual awards are the only ones hosted by a national newspaper which focus on both environmental change and social justice, highlighting those that are doing incredible things - big or small - to make it easier for us all to act and live in a sustainable way. They shine a light on corporations acting responsibly, groundbreaking ideas that change the mould, community projects that engage people with issues and online initiatives which demonstrate that ethical living is accessible to everyday people.
To nominate someone, a project or classroom idea for The Observer Ethical Awards visit www.observer.co.uk/ethicalawards
*The winning project receives a £6000 grant payable as 3 x £2000 a year installment over three years from Ecover. Installments are paid yearly subject to an annual project appraisal and agreed spending plan between the winner and Ecover.
