2018 River Champions

The success of projects aiming to improve rivers for wildlife and people is largely influenced by the involvement of volunteers. We understand the importance of this contribution and wish to acknowledge those that may otherwise not get recognition.
'River Champions' seeks to recognise and celebrate the outstanding efforts of individuals contributing to river restoration in their area. It aims to recognise those dedicating time outside of their day-to-day roles to contribute toward improving rivers for wildlife and people. The selected River Champions will be recognised in the following ways:
  • Invited to the UK River Prize Dinner on April 24th 2018 to receive a River Champions Certificate.
  • Individually acknowledged on RRC social media platforms.
  • Individually featured in the RRC Bulletin which is sent out to over 2,800 contacts from across the UK and Europe.
  • Documented on the RRC website where their contribution and achievements will be detailed on a permanent River Champions webpage.
  • Presented on a '2018 River Champions' poster in the Poster Session at the 2018 RRC Annual Network Conference from 24th-25th April 2018.

Below is a brief application form detailing contact information for the proposer and nominee, and a short summary of the nominee. Please note, if the nomination is successful we will ask you to send us a photograph of the nominee for advertising purposes (mug-shot or action photo!)
