Climate Protection Award of the City of Beckum

Climate Protection Award of the City of Beckum -
Climate protection role models wanted

Beckumers are in demand

The City of Beckum's guideline for the awarding of the Climate Protection Prize was adopted by the City Council on 01.07.2021.

There are no limits to creativity!

The city of Beckum will again offer the Climate Protection Award in 2024. There are no limits to creativity in the selection of projects for the climate protection award: from the avoidance of packaging waste, joint waste collection campaigns, climate clubs to species protection projects for endangered species with natural gardens and insect hotels as well as innovative technical projects, applications are welcome. The focus is on personal initiative to become active for environmental protection on site and to encourage other Beckum residents to join in. The aim of the Climate Protection Award is therefore not least to give special recognition to this civic commitment in connection with environmentally oriented action.

Who can join in?

Private individuals, companies, clubs, associations, educational institutions and social institutions that have their place of residence or business in Beckum can participate. The climate protection project must have been realised within the last 18 months before the application or be so far advanced that initial results are already available.

The Climate Protection Award is endowed with 2,000 euros. If necessary, the prize money can be divided among several projects.

Climate Council as jury

The jury, consisting of the members of the Climate Council, will decide on the most innovative and best projects for climate protection. For this purpose, the evaluation criteria relevance for climate protection in Beckum, exemplary function and feasibility, energy and greenhouse gas savings as well as the special category innovations have been defined.

"Giving a stage to the commitment of the people of Beckum for climate protection with the climate protection award" is one of the goals of climate protection manager Lena Herzog.

The Climate Protection Award is supported by Sparkasse Beckum-Wadersloh and Energieversorgung Beckum.
