2014 ASEAN Champions of Biodiversity Awards

The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) is pleased to announce its call for nominations for the 2014 ASEAN Champions of Biodiversity Awards, which will recognize individuals or groups from the Youth, Media, and Business sectors who have made significant contributions to the conservation and sustainable management of biodiversity in the ASEAN region. Persons may nominate themselves, their own organizations, or a third party whom they believe should receive recognition. Winners, who will receive token cash prizes, will be declared as ASEAN Ambassadors of Goodwill for Biodiversity Conservation and will be recognized in September 2014. A publication of best practices will also be produced based on the stories of the finalists and winners.

The ASEAN Champions of Biodiversity seeks to identify and engage leaders among the business, media, and youth sectors who will spread awareness of the urgent need to conserve biodiversity.
By highlighting the outstanding biodiversity conservation efforts of these sectors, more people of the ASEAN will be aware of the values of biodiversity. The winners will serve as inspiration for the public to mobilize and participate in conservation efforts. This is the power of awareness.
