SLOVENIA, a country in Central Europe known for its mountains, outdoor recreation and ski resorts, is distinguished by an exceptionally wide variety of habitats. This is due to the contact of geological units and biogeographical regions, but also due to human influences. Around 12.5% of the territory is protected with different protection categories, and 35.5% within the Natura 2000 Ecological Network.
The diverse habitat of Slovenia is the focal of Laura Škvorc’s advocacy as Miss Earth Slovenia 2015. She is the Ambassador for this year’s Komenda Agricultural Trade Fair and she will be bringing on her environmental message to the world through the Miss Earth 2015 Pageant which will happen in Vienna, Austria from November 18 to December 5, 2015.
In Miss Earth Pageant, Slovenia has participated actively since 2003 and was able to land a Top 16 finish in 2011 with Rebecca Kim Lekse. With the level of competition this year, can Laura make it through the elite Top 16 circle?
Let’s meet her!
ON HER NATIONAL PAGEANT:
“I was selected through avcompetition for Miss Earth Slovenia 2015.
They crowned me on 10 of September.”
THOUGHTS ON CLIMATE CHANGE:
“I am vegetarian and people are not aware that this is important not only for our health
but even for the health of our planet. I want to inspire people and make them realize
how important is saving Mother Earth, by eating less meat.
The simple fact that adopting a vegetarian diet is the strongest possible stand
against global warming. I am also driving a car that runs with a natural gas!”
AS ELEMENT OF THE EARTH:
I imagine fire as a fiery Warrior. I am a Warrior.
I am fighting until the end. I am passionate and courageous.
In life, I want to create something you’ll be proud.
I want to be successful in all areas I’ll be doing.”
EXPECTATIONS ON MISS EARTH 2015:
“I want to meet each girl and I am blessed I will have this opportunity.
No matter from which country she will be, we are in the same place with the same dream.
I wish to all these girls good luck, because I believe they are wonderful ladies on the outside and on the inside.”
I AM A WOMAN OF THE EARTH BECAUSE
I am spreading love and respect to all the people and to our Mother Earth!
