The youngest amongst the grandslam pageants, Miss Earth, has always been a favourite of mine. This pageant which started at the dawn of the 21st century is magnificent in its cause especially now that climate change has become a vital debate in and out of the political arena. Whatever side we ought to choose with climate change, whether it is a hoax or a paradigm, one thing is clear – the planet we live in should and must be taken cared of.

Setting aside our beliefs in climate change, Miss Earth envisions a better Earth for all of us, for all our children and for our children’s children. Their advocacy coupled with the symbolical event of crowning Miss Earth is continuing to increase awareness and better attitude towards our environment. It is just not a beauty pageant where ladies from every corner of our world parade their sweet smiles, dazzling bodies and beautiful faces; but includes an articulate mind that is passionate on the protection and promotion of a healthy Earth.
The crowning of Miss Earth 2011 and her associates will be determined on the 3rd of December in Manila, Philippines. It is going to be an exciting and worth-remembering pageant since more than 80 girls around the globe are competing for the coveted crown. Needless to say, as Miss Earth and her auxiliaries Misses Air, Water and Fire are all named; they will all be guardians of Mother Earth for the year to come.
