PEOPLE can nominate a young person from Ealing or Hillingdon for a Jack Petchey Environmental Award.

Winners, aged 11-25, will be awarded a certificate, a letter from Sir Jack and the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to £300 for their project.

The award was introduced by the Foundation after its recent Environmental Youth Survey, in which almost 4,000 young people were asked how they could be better supported to build a more sustainable future.

Almost half said they would like young people to be better recognised for helping the environment.

A grant could be used to buy equipment (like recycling facilities or renewable energy sources), towards an event (like an Upcycling Day) or for a trip, like enabling a group of young people to travel to a nature area.

Nominations are open from June 21 to October 31.
