The greatest enemy of progress is complacency. The battle for a better planet is only just beginning.

Sure, more people talk about it than ever before. Sure, more people than ever before translate those words into actions. But what we witness is just the smallest and most modest of starts.

What we see is the first skirmishes in a battle that will be waged forever. We cannot afford people to think, for the briefest of moments, that all is in hand. It isn’t. It is up to all of us to continue to make as much noise as possible to keep this crucial issue at the forefront of everyone’s consciousness and conscience.

That’s where we at The ECHO feel we have a huge part to play. We are the number one news medium on Merseyside. In print, online, on mobile, our audience is growing by the day. So this message will get louder and louder and these awards will become more and more significant. The audience grows but the goals remain the same:

  • To RECOGNISE the best environmental businesses, schools, community projects and individuals
  • To THANK those who are making a difference, be they winners or nominees
  • To FEATURE the green heroes in the Liverpool ECHO in print and online
  • To CELEBRATE their magnificent achievements at our fantastic Awards Night.

Join the battle. Make a noise.

Deadline for nominations

Awards Evening
Thu 10 Sep

Winners will be revealed at the Echo Environment Awards held on Thursday 10th September 2020

As you would expect we have been keeping a close eye on the latest Government advice around the Covid-19 pandemic.

Although at this stage there is no specific advice around the return of events, after consultation with the event sponsors we have taken the difficult decision not to hold a live awards ceremony this year but, the show will go on, and instead we have created a brand new VIRTUAL EVENT EXPERIENCE for this years awards.

Our decision has been driven by our primary concern for the health and safety of all our nominees, sponsors and employees but also the uncertainty about the date that we will be able to hold a public gathering and what that might look like with current social distancing measures.

We want to make sure that you are celebrated and at this stage we simply cannot guarantee the awards ceremony can take place in September so our new virtual event is the best way forward. If you have already booked and paid for tickets, we will be in touch with you to issue a refund straight away.

The new virtual event will take place on Thursday 10th September at 6.30pm, hosted by BBC’s Roger Johnson.  We will celebrate the finalists and reveal the winners exactly as we had planned to do, and you and your friends and colleagues will be able to join in and watch the awards from the comfort and safety of your own homes.

We will of course share more details on how to join the virtual event  very soon.

In the meantime, SAVE THE DATE, and if you have any questions please email me or give me a call on 07771 955949.
