The long wait is now over. After successfully mounting two consecutive virtual pageants because of the pandemic, Miss Earth is taking on a hybrid format this year with virtual and on-ground events in the country where followers worldwide can look forward to an exciting finale showcasing the Philippines’s breath-taking tourism destinations and, of course, the beauty of the earth ambassadors – environmental advocates to take part in a life-changing experience.
“Although the pandemic is still upon us, we are making sure that all safety and health protocols are observed in order for the delegates to have a live on-ground pageant experience in a safe environment – which is what the pageant advocates for,” expressed Ramon Monzon, president and co-founder of Miss Earth.
Some 90 delegates from countries around the world will be in the Philippines by November 12 and take on this year’s theme, “ME Loves Fauna,” to emphasize the importance of caring for animal life. The theme also gives awareness of how animal life, whether wildlife or domestic, and especially the endangered species, are essential members of the environment which must be given proper care and attention.
“Also, showcasing the beauty of the Philippines to the world, as it rises up from the pandemic, would be beneficial to our tourism industry. The pageant will give more focus on staging events outdoors showing nature and picturesque eco landscapes, and at the same time lessening its carbon footprint with natural lighting,” Lorraine Schuck, EVP and co- founder of Miss Earth elaborated.
The virtual and on-ground events and activities will be live streamed worldwide from Miss Earth social media accounts – its official YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tiktok and website, starting October 24 towards the finals on November 27, 2022 when the successor of the reigning Miss Earth Destiny Wagner from Belize will be crowned.
The Miss Earth 2022 finals will be streamed online and telecast on national and international TV stations.
