Do you know of individuals or organisations whose activities help to ‘Mind our Microbes’? As part of the inaugural World Microbiome Day on June 27th 2018, we are calling on members of the public to nominate people, or groups, for a ‘Microbiome Hero’ award.


We would like to acknowledge and celebrate individuals, organisations (such as community groups) and businesses whose activities improve our microbiomes and mind our microbes.  Please feel free to nominate people/groups who have carried out microbiome friendly activities e.g. a school planting a garden, a farmer that has introduced microbiome friendly agricultural practices), a community group organising a clean-up of their local park or beach, someone who makes fermented foods, or cooks healthy meals.


Nominate your Microbiome Hero by emailing the name of the individual or group, your reasons for nominating (and if possible include a photo) to, or on twitter using the hashtag #worldmicrobiomeday before the deadline of 25 June 2018.DEADLINE HAS NOW PASSED


We will highlight the great work of Microbiome Heroes on the World Microbiome Day website and on social media, and they will be awarded a Microbiome Hero certificate. 

We are working hard to evaluate all the nominations and will announce the nominees on social media within the next few weeks.  So stay tuned!
