The Sustainability Champion of the Year Award is an individual award open to both staff and students at a tertiary education institution. It will recognise people at any level (except Executive/Leadership level – please submit under the Outstanding Sustainability Leadership Team of the Year Award) who have worked hard at implementing a sustainability project/initiative (or several) and whose involvement has made a positive impact be that on their peers, their institution, their students, their local community or their local workforce. A key criterion is actions that have been taken over and above the normal requirements of people’s jobs. Applications must provide evidence of impact, and of good leadership/championing practice in engaging and inspiring others.
This category is only open to staff who do not have a formal responsibility for sustainability – for staff with a formal responsibility for sustainability please submit under the Outstanding Sustainability Leadership Team of the Year Award if appropriate.
Individuals apply themselves but should be formally nominated by a manager or peer (within or outside the sector). Individuals that have not won previously can reapply after 2 years. Teams are allowed to be submitted as long as the role and impact of each team member is made clear.
