SALMOND ON THE LOOK OUT FOR GORDON’S ‘GREEN CHAMPION’

>> 11 January 2011

Local Gordon MSP, Alex Salmond, is encouraging constituents to nominate an inspiring individual who is passionate about all things green to be Scotland’s next ‘Young Green Champion’.

The judging panel is looking for examples of volunteering, community action, education, campaigning or from business. Nominees will be judged on the basis of their work, not on the number of nominations they receive. The nominee must be aged between 11 and 25 years old on the 9th March 2011.

The Young Scottish Green List winners will be invited, along with friends and family, to celebrate their achievements at a vibrant award ceremony. The ceremony will take place on Wednesday 9th March at Edinburgh University Students’ Association.

Commenting, Mr Salmond said:

“The North East is a beautiful place to live and work, so it’s no surprise that folk here are passionate about promoting our environment. I know of some great work going on in Gordon to look after the environment, and raise awareness of environmental issues.

“The Young Scottish Green List are look for someone exceptional in promoting green issues and working for a greener Scotland. I know they’ll find many fine candidates in Gordon. It’s great to see young, passionate activists being recognised in this way.

“The SNP Government has put green policies front and centre in our programme for Scotland, and I know folk here in Gordon share that enthusiasm.”
