The ninth annual Eco-Logic Awards will take place 5 June 2020 on World Environment Day. Hosted by The Enviropaedia, entries are now open for individuals, organisations and communities that are making a difference through environmentally sustainable initiatives.
The awards will put the spotlight on positive action taken against the impact of our environmental crisis and highlight the efforts of SA’s eco-champions.
“Our news can be filled with a lot of negativity about the state of our planet, but there are some exceptional efforts being made to combat urgent issues, and these awards aim to recognise these efforts and encourage others to get onboard,” says David Parry-Davies, director of The Enviropaedia and the Eco-Logic Awards.
There are 12 categories in which participants can take part. Up to five of the best nominees in each category will be selected as finalists and invited to attend the ‘Glamorously Green’ Eco-Logic Gala Awards evening at Cape Point Vineyards in Cape Town.
The 12 categories in this year’s Eco-Logic Awards include the Biodiversity Award, Climate Change Award, Eco-Innovation Award, Recycling and Waste Management Award, Eco-Build Award, Water Conservation Award, Green Economy Award, Municipalities Award, Eco-Youth Award, Eco-Community Award, Eco-Angel Award, and Eco-Warrior Award.
