Who is your green champion?


Cumbernauld and Kilsyth community groups are being urged to nominate their favourite local eco-initiative in time for the 2015 Greener Together Awards.

Rural affairs and environment cabinet secretary Richard Lochhead said: “ We had many great entries last year, and we look forward to seeing what great work is being done in the 2015 tranche of nominations.”

To be eligible for a Greener Together Award, the venture must be a live project or initiative in Scotland that is directly related to greener home energy, environmentally friendly travel, local in-season food, reducing or avoiding food waste, reducing consumption – or increasing recycling.

To be in the frame for an award a project also needs to demonstrate the positive effects of the project on the community and the local environment.

Winners will be presented with a Greener Together Award plaque , designed and produced by award-winning Edinburgh-based artist Kate Ive.

Full details of the awards and how to nominate a project of your choice are available online at www.greenerscotland.org/why-live-greener/greener-communities.

Alternatively entries can be emailed directly to greener@stripecommunications.com.
