The Sierra Club Green Energy and Green Livelihoods Award
The Sierra Club is now accepting applications for the Green Energy and Green Livelihoods Award! The chosen grassroots non-governmental organization will get a $100,000 and recognition as an outstanding environmental success in India. After all, effective organizations deserve credit for their effort in environmentally-related and constructive community-based work.
So why India? Like Live Earth, the Sierra Club believes “no solution to climate change, however, will be credible or effective without significant changes in this momentum and without investment in alternative energy sources, something India, China, and the United States must work on together” and that “India is a world leader in producing the kinds of green technology that can lead our countries into a brighter future. From wind to solar, biogas to alternative fuel vehicles.”
If you have any nominees in mind, please enter them, but do it quick because the deadline is October 31, 2008!
