At a time when the earth is going through a crisis and is troubled, the need is for a new generation of Earth Warriors.
People across the globe are talking about big problems like climate change and water. Governments and countries are unable to reach a solution and there is a general feeling that we are fighting a losing battle.
But there are individuals who are making a difference. Individuals who are working in their small ways to tackle climate change. These individuals and their contributions need to be recognized so that others can be shown a way.
Earth Matters Foundation launched the Eco Warrior Awards in 2008 in collaboration with tve (Television Trust for the Environment). The award provides an opportunity to recognize and reward environmental heroes who are working towards a sustainable environmental future at the grass root and individual level.
Apart from recognizing and rewarding such efforts, the award will in the long- term aim to act as a yard stick and inspiration for responsible environmental practices. The aim is to inspire citizens to work towards a sustainable environmental future
