Description

The Eco Champion Awards (ECA) is an annual celebration to award our young local environmentalists. Organised by the Education for Sustainable Development programme, we recognise individuals who positively contribute to sustainable living and encourage communities and even local councils to support their green initiatives.

Since 2017 we have given recognition to individuals who go the extra mile for the environment in various ways.  Their stories are inspirational – from young students who started the school’s organic vegetable patch to those who championed waste management issues in their community. Together, they have created a massive impact on sustainability and well-being within their communities and beyond.

 

This year, the ECA is embarking on this journey with WWF Malaysia’s corporate partner, H&M and the Freshwater team of WWF-Malaysia. With a focus on safeguarding freshwater resources by reducing waste footprint, we are seeking nominees with strong passion to initiate, drive and be involved significantly in efforts towards river conservation and solid waste management at river basins.

Instead of individual nominations for students/lecturers/teachers, there will be six Eco Champion Award recipients for 2021 who will be selected to receive up to RM 3,000 each to run projects related to the above-mentioned topics. Nominate yourself or someone deserving to receive the grant. Your nominations will go a long way in helping us identify the right people and projects to conserve our rivers.

Eligibilities

Eligibilities
  • The nomination is open to individuals under the Eco-Schools and FEC Eco Campus programmes. However, if you are not part of the programmes, please mention your school/tertiary institution.
  • You may apply for an individual, pair or a group of a maximum of four people (the principal applicant must be between 16-35 years old) category.  Self-nomination is allowed too. Please inform the nominees beforehand if you are nominating others for the project.

  • River cleanup projects must be within the three (3) main river basins in Klang Valley, which are Langat River Basin, Klang River Basin, Selangor River Basin and their tributaries. However, other types of activities outside of Klang Valley will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • The proposed activities may include but are not limited to river clean ups. Any conservation efforts related to river conservation and solid waste management are welcomed, be it indoor or outdoor activities.
  • Proposed ideas and contents must be original and developed by the applicants. However, the proposed project must not necessarily be new. You may also propose existing projects with NGOs or conservation efforts by communities to fit the criteria.
  • Each project proposal must target the involvement of at least 20 participants to a maximum of 100 participants. It is encouraged that participation should be balanced in terms of gender and age groups.
  • All projects must be implemented in accordance with the safety and health guidelines and the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) as advised by the Ministry of Health Malaysia.

  • All results are final based on evaluation and voting. WWF-Malaysia reserves the right to modify or cancel the nomination process or any of the arrangements, schedules, plans or other items directly or indirectly related to the Eco Champion Awards, at any time and for any reason if deemed necessary.

The grant recipients for the successful projects will receive the first half (50%) of the grant in April 2021 to initiate the project, and the remaining 50% balance will be released based on the project’s progress report in May 2021.
  • Photographs and videos may be taken during the nomination process and final event. By nominating, you acknowledge and agree that the organizers may use the picture and videos connected with communications of the Eco-Champion Award. If you disagree with this usage, please write in, and we will remove or blur the images/videos in our communication media.
