Live Forward Awards Call for Nominations
We are seeking nominations for the 2021 Live Forward Awards. Help us recognize the innovation and impact happening in our own neighborhoods. The Live Forward Awards acknowledge changemakers and inclusive leaders who are promoting local sustainability and community well-being. A nominee’s work will ideally impact one or more areas of holistic sustainability: a healthy environment, equity & social well-being, and a just economy. Awardees receive a recognition of $250.

Nominations are due Monday, August 9th at 11:59 PM.
We encourage nominations of individuals from all ages, races, ethnicities and backgrounds. Diversity and inclusion are important aspects of the Live Forward Awards. In addition, if nominating an individual working with youth, consider nominating the youth themselves. Awardees are selected by the Live Forward Awards Selection Committee, composed of past awardees and local community members. Nominees and awardees will be recognized at the 2021 Sustain Dane Summit.
