Already on it’s 18th year, Miss Earth is a pageant that has grown right before us. Under the watchful eyes of Carousel Productions, Miss Earth has flourished into such a big pageant, highly-regarded around the world. Miss Earth has built such a standard that rewards girls not just for their beauty but also for their capacity to answer the all-important question-and-answer round.
Let’s take a look back at the winning answers of the Miss Earth Winners in the last 18 years.
2001 – Catharina Svensson (Denmark)
Final Question in Miss Earth 2001: “Technology makes life very convenient but it is also being blamed for certain environmental problems. How do you propose to find a balance between technology and Earth preservation?”
Miss Denmark: “Well, of course technology does make a lot of problems for us in the environment. But we can do something to make it better. For example in Denmark, we do a lot of farming and we use a lot of technology to make it easier for us. But that also means that we use a lot of chemicals that spread and go down to a ground water and makes the ground water worse. So what we can do and what we are doing at the moment is to try to make a regulations on what chemicals are allowed to be used and also thereby make controls of it so we can use those chemicals less.”
