All this and more because of youth caring for our planet. READ MORE about these Eco-Heroes!
keep our planet alive & well
Help kids save the planet! For 15 years, Action for Nature has been honoring Eco-Heroes: 8-16 year olds who have completed a substantial project to help sustain our planet. Eco-Heroes have gone onto work as ambassadors for the UN, save cheetahs in Namibia, and work for Google while creating partnerships between China and the United States. Eco-Heroes are often creating connections between ecosystems and humans, making the world a more livable, breathable, and healthier place. Learn HOW TO APPLY.
Every year since 2003, ACTION FOR NATURE has sought to recognize and reward young people who are taking action to solve the world’s tough environmental problems.
Youth from countries around the globe send in their stories and explain their work. Then a panel of judges including experts in environmental science, biology and education determines the year’s top achievers. Each ECO-HERO AWARD WINNER receives a cash prize, a certificate of achievement and other benefits.
