Applications open for CPRE Norfolk Awards 2021
Looking after the countryside, improving life for Norfolk communities and helping deal with climate change are all areas where we need to take action.
The CPRE Norfolk Awards celebrate people and communities who are doing just that and applications for the 2021 Awards are open now.
The 2021 CPRE Norfolk Awards has a range of categories and we are looking for projects carried out by local groups, local organisations (such as parish councils), and those in the private and commercial sector. We are also particularly keen to recognise activities that involve young people.
- rural living (for projects that improve the sustainability of rural living, such as reducing energy, carbon, water use in rural communities)
- countryside champions (for projects that enhance wildlife, landscapes, or improve countryside access)
- digging deep (for businesses, local authorities and parish councils that are putting something back to benefit the environment or landscape)
- good lighting design (to recognise schemes which keep light pollution impacts to a minimum in the rural countryside). We will give award certificates for sensitive lighting schemes that do not spoil this important asset (this is not a competitive category)
You can nominate your own project or someone else’s. Just spread the word – we know there are lots of amazing things happening around the county – everything from regular litter picks by volunteers to amazing Passivhaus housing developments, organic farms protecting local biodiversity habitats to schools teaching the next generation about sustainable living. Our past awards have gone to affordable local housing schemes, nature conservation and rural job creation projects. Size does not matter especially where initiatives can be replicated throughout the county.
Entries can be made between 1st February and 28th May 2021 so download an application form and get your nominations in NOW!
