Greening the Future Call for Entries


Greening the Future: Call for Entries

It’s that time of the year when the M&G sends out a call for noteworthy and newsworthy environmental projects to profile in its annual Greening the Future Awards. This year, with the continuing drought putting water on the top of many people's agenda, the judges will be focusing on the issue of water in South Africa.

The awards already recognise Water Efficiency & Management, but this year the categories of Green Technology Innovations and Community Conservation will also be awarded (if possible) to projects that focus on preserving our water resources.

You are invited to join in the celebrations by sending in your ‘greening the future entries’ for 2016.

Entries opened on 26 February 2016 and will close 29 May 2016.

There are ten categories, with the Editor’s Choice award either given to an entrant who has not won in a specific category, but who is deemed worthy of special recognition, or awarded to one of the winners in these categories.

Categories are as follows:

  • Innovations for Climate Change Adaptation

  • Energy Efficiency & Carbon Management

  • Community Renewable Energy Innovations

  • Youth Leadership & Job Creation

  • Green Technology Innovations

  • Community Conservation

  • Biodiversity Stewardship

  • Species Conservation

  • Green Economy Modelling

  • Water Efficiency & Management

Editor’s Choice Award: This award is handed out at the Editor’s discretion and based on the recommendations of the judges.
