MISS EARTH, an environmental event founded in 2001 that channels the beauty pageant entertainment industry as an effective tool in promoting environmental awareness, is celebrating its 15th year in Austria - famous for its  Danube River, mountain villages, baroque city architecture, Imperial history and rugged alpine terrain. 

Around 90 delegates from all over the world will be arriving in Vienna on Nov.18 to start their activities and will converge at the Marx Halle in Vienna on Dec. 5 for the coronation night.

Climate Change will be the focus of Miss Earth for its Crystal Year celebration.  The delegates will revisit and renew its campaign to influence people’s minds that protecting the planet is a very personal issue and everybody shares the responsibility to protect it through the five key words: Rethink, Reuse, Reduce, Recyle, Respect.

This two-hour television special will also feature and highlight the famous eco-tourism spots in Austria and the country’s laudable efforts in sustainable living. 

Miss Earth 2015 will be telecast internationally and live streamed via the Internet worldwide.
