Enter The Greening the Future Awards 2017

The Mail & Guardian’s annual Greening the Future Awards showcase the very best in work that is making the world a better place. From tackling climate change to keeping rhinos alive, South Africa is packed with projects that deserve attention.

The M&G does this through a special supplement in its print publication, and across its digital platforms. Winners are announced at an awards ceremony in September.

In recognition of the last three years being the hottest on record, this year’s focus is on individuals and communities doing their bit to combat climate change. Governments have failed to lead on this issue, something that would normally make people despondent. But some people, using technological innovation and local expertise, are stepping up and guaranteeing a future for all.

That means that 2017 is a year of solutions. For its 13th year, Greening the Future will award projects in 10 categories, in line with this overall theme.

Enter below before 28 July.
