Currently in its Sixth edition, NCCARF’s Climate Adaptation Champions Award 2017-18 aims to recognize the work of active practitioners who are changing behavior, techniques, businesses and policies to adapt to an altered future. Climate Adaptation Champions could be:
• Excellent communicators or educators, actively communicating the knowledge needed for climate adaptation
• People, groups and governments actively involved in making decisions that take climate change impacts into account
• Leaders in their field, helping others to adapt
• Inventors, designers and businesses leading the way with innovative ways to adapt.
Nominations are sought in each of four categories: Individual, Business, Community and Government.
I encourage you to nominate a Champion! You will only need to fill out a simple Application Form and submit it to by 28 February 2018. Further information of the Award (including the forms to download) can be found here: https://www.nccarf.edu.au/content/climate-adaptation-champions.
The winners will receive free registration and travel for the NCCARF/Engineers Australia Climate Adaptation Conference 2018 in Melbourne (8 – 10 May 2018), where Champions will be announced and receive their awards.
We look forward for your nominations!
