When an environmental emergency happens, are you a Green Star?
The Green Star Awards recognize those who have made remarkable efforts to prevent, prepare for, and respond to environmental disasters around the world.
The Awards hail real-life heroes from around the world. They commend those who not only exercised courage and leadership to rise from the ruins of environmental disasters, but more importantly, those who worked tirelessly to prevent such crises, and established measures to brace for their impact.
The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Green Cross International and the UN Environment Programme are the joint organizers of the Awards.
The nomination period for the 2013 edition has closed.
