Nominations for the 2015 Anne Lindsey Protecting Our
Earth Award are now open.
The deadline for nominations is January 15, 2016.
Award will be presented at Reel Green on March 10th, 2016.
First established in 1990, the Anne Lindsey Protecting Our Earth Awards (affectionately known as the Earthies) are presented by Manitoba Eco-Network annually in recognition of achievements in protecting and stewarding Manitoba’s environment. The environmental community acknowledges the creativity, diligence and commitment of our peers in presenting the awards.
In 2011, Anne Lindsey retired from Manitoba Eco-Network after serving for 23 years as Executive Director. In recognition of her extensive service, the Board of Directors voted to rename Manitoba Eco-Network’s Protecting Our Earth Awards in her honour.
For over 20 years, Manitoba Eco-Network has provided recognition to groups and individuals for their contributions in promoting sustainability and protecting ecosystems with its annual awards. Anne, an award winner herself, provided inspiration and mentoring for many of the groups and individuals who have won the award over the years. Anne has been active on nearly every environmental issue that concerns Manitoba. She helped spearhead the campaign in the 1980s that kept nuclear waste out of this province, led initiatives on children’s health, and raised awareness about toxicity in our environment. It was under her leadership that the Manitoba Eco-Network took on important causes like food, climate change, and water.
