The Greenwich Sustainability Committee is pleased to request nominations for its newly established Sustainability Award to be presented in conjunction with the Town’s Earth Day Proclamation.
It’s important to acknowledge the hard work and efforts being made by many members of our community.
The Sustainability Award has been created to celebrate Greenwich residents who embody the principles of the committee:
ACKNOWLEDGE our place as participants within living and interdependent ecosystems.
COMMIT to sustaining, improving and restoring our natural resources, landscape and watershed on which future generations will depend.
ENCOURAGE the growth and development that attends a healthy economy to be rooted in the health of our natural systems.
HONOR the natural function and beauty of our landscape as integral to building community and serving wellbeing.
ENVISION collaboration among all members of our Greenwich community to forward responsible and enduring stewardship of water, air, land and shore.
RECOGNIZE a changing natural environment and seek resilient strategies to meet and adapt to inevitable challenges.
RESPECT diversity in all its forms: biodiversity in our landscapes, watershed and shore is what makes them resilient and diversity of representation in our process is what makes for successful outcomes.
Please send nominations to [email protected] no later than March 17. For more information about the Greenwich Sustainability Committee go to https://www.greenwichct.gov/1775/Sustainability-Committee on the Town website.
