Jerusalem24– Miss Earth is an international beauty pageant that also advocates for environmental awareness, conservation, and social responsibility.
It is also the third-largest beauty pageant in the world in terms of the number of national-level competitions to participate in the world finals. Along with Miss World, Miss Universe, and Miss International, it is one of the Big Four international beauty pageants, the most coveted titles among international pageant competitions.
In 2022, Nadeen Ayoub will be representing Palestine in the Miss Earth pageant. She is a Palestinian fitness and health coach as well as an entrepreneur with an online fitness brand.
“It is not about the appearance, it’s also about the beauty inside. What you can give to society,” Nadeen told Jerusalem24. She is working to bridge several organizations to make an impact on Palestinian communities concerning environmental change.
Ayoub is hoping to achieve several goals, among which are raising awareness of environmental protection, pushing for legislation, lessening the use of plastic, and working towards a national recycling initiative.
Miss Earth 2022 will be the 22nd edition of the Miss Earth pageant. The current Miss Earth, Destiny Wagner of Belize who was crowned virtually in November 2021, will crown her successor at the end of the event.
The Miss Earth winner is the spokesperson for the Miss Earth Foundation, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and other environmental organizations. The Miss Earth Foundation also works with the environmental departments and ministries of participating countries, various private sectors, and corporations, as well as the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF).
