Friend and colleague Liz Mutch at Creative Concern has sent over details of the Sustainable Stars programme:
Constructing The Future are looking for the best examples of sustainability from across the Pennine Lancashire area, in a new competition launched this month. The project aims to uncover the unsung green heroes of the region who are doing their bit to promote sustainable practices across wide range of activities.
From house builders, to technology providers, community groups to eco decorators Constructing The Future are searching out projects that can show others how it is done and to increase the awareness of sustainability across Pennine Lancashire towns.
The 13 categories within the Sustainable Stars include sections for the best heritage renovation, most innovative use of renewable technology, a waste management and recycling award and a prize for the best eco home builder. There are also categories for the general public and community groups including the best eco home renovation which includes any improvement made to a home from eco paints to a solar panel.
The competition is free to enter and every project will have the chance to be included in the Sustainable Stars exhibition and book. The culmination of the competition will be an awards ceremony at Elevate’s Constructing The Future national sustainability conference to be held at the end of October in Burnley.
If you are involved in a project or know of one that could be suitable for a Sustainable Star and you live in the Pennine Lancashire area, we want to hear from you!
