We welcome your nominations for the 2nd Annual Random Kindness Community Resilience Leadership Award. The award will be given to members of the community who embody the principles of Random Kindness and are working actively to develop change at the regional scale. The Random Kindness Community Resilience Award recognizes leaders who embody the vision and values of community-driven planning for climate change adaptation and resilience. We honor those who:
  • Strive to ensure that frontline communities, those who are most directly impacted by climate change processes, are engaged in public policy and participatory planning
  • Conduct research in partnership with vulnerable communities and listen deeply to embedded community knowledge
  • Build bridges across sectors, issues, and social divides to create a true movement for sustainability and justice
  • Demonstrate that equity, environment and economy are mutually reinforcing in an interconnected world.
Please send a photo of the person and a picture of him/her in action, a description of what the action is, and why you’re nominating him/her in 300 words or less. Submit nominations here or send an email to breakthroughcommunities@gmail.com with the subject line “RK Leadership Award Nomination,” the nominee’s name and the date you submitted it.
