Vote for outstanding environmental achievements by individuals and organisations
“The NSW Environment Awards honour the extraordinary efforts of groups and individuals across NSW to protect the environment,” Chief Executive Officer Pepe Clarke said.
“The hard work of community and regional environment groups and dedicated individuals has been particularly important over the past year given threats to our forests, marine parks and sanctuaries and the rapid expansion of coal mining and exploration across the state. The Awards recognise the enormous amount of work, passion and commitment that goes into standing up for what’s right for our environment.”
The categories for the awards include: - The Dunphy Award, for most outstanding environmental effort of an individual. - The Marie Byles Award, for the most outstanding new environmental campaign. - The Nature Conservation Council Member Group Award, for the most outstanding member group who has demonstrated commitment and success in the conservation of the NSW environment. - The Climate Award, for the most inspiring climate action initiative by a climate change community group. - The Rising Star Award, for the most outstanding new campaigner under the age of 30. - The Allen Strom Hall of Fame, for long standing service and commitment to the conservation movement, and the courage to challenge government and non-government decision-makers.
