The Search for the Seven Wonders of Nature

The New 7 Wonders of the World campaign was a resounding success, in which more than 100 million votes were cast and which took democracy to a new global level. Now, the second campaign organized by the non-profit New7Wonders Foundation, to choose the New 7 Wonders of Nature, is off to a promising start: some 200 nominations submitted by some half a million people to date.

Call for Official Supported Nominees!

Nominations can be submitted for the New 7 Wonders of Nature campaign until December 31, 2008. Check the world map now to ensure that your favorite natural site has been suggested, then get in touch with local authorities to make sure they form an Official Supporting Committee for the nominee.

Vote for your nominee!

Voting for nominees will continue through 31.12.08. Then a panel of experts will create a list of 21candidates from which voters worldwide will elect the 7 wonders of nature. The New7Wonders Panel of Experts, under the leadership of Prof. Federico Mayor, former Director- General of UNESCO, will select the 21 New7Wonders of Nature Finalists from the top-ranked 77 Official Supported Nominees (to ensure the fairness of the process, the names of the Panel of Experts will be released after their decision has been made). The 21 finalists will then be put to popular vote to choose the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

The change from man-made structures to treasures of nature

New7Wonders Founder and President Bernard Weber notes, “We are finding the New7Wonders of Nature campaign to be excitingly different from the first one. So many breathtakingly beautiful, natural places are still quite unknown to many. From waterfalls to fjords, rainforests to mountain peaks, freshwater lakes to salt flats, we are discovering together the incredible beauty and variety of our planet.”
