UNEP Goodwill Ambassador Gisele Bundchen and the WED Challenge Campaign both nominated for an International Green Award!

After a phenomenal response to our online poll, the International Green Awards™ is pleased to announce the shortlist for the Best Green International Celebrity Award. Voting from the public has been overwhelming and it was very close between the nominated celebrities. However, three of these nominees received outstanding support and are thus part of this year’s shortlist, of which one person will be crowned an international green media ambassador.

This accolade carries with it the responsibility to continue to promote a global green agenda through the media. These shortlisted nominees have used their prominence to promote environmental and sustainable development issues and many are already known as global ambassadors for organisations such as United Nations Environment Programme and Oxfam International.

The top three voted celebrities in our 2011 shortlist are:

  • Gisele Bündchen- Supermodel; Brazil
  • Miguel Bose- Musician/actor; Spain
  • Sir Paul McCartney- Musician, UK

From this shortlist, the candidate with the most votes will be crowned the winner at the International Green Awards™ showcase sustainable gala dinner and ceremony on Thursday 24th of November at the Natural History Museum, London and be heralded as the ‘greenest’ media exemplar internationally. The international nature of the shortlist highlights the significance of green and sustainable issues to these high profile global media figures. This year’s event will also be themed around the rainforest to coincide with the United Nations International Year of the Forest with state of the art visual projections.

Watch for results on November 24th!
