Miss Earth 2011 will be held on December 4, 2011 in Manila, Philippines. It was originally scheduled to be held at the Impact, Muang Thong Thani, Bangkok, Thailand. However the pageant organizers decided to move the pageant back to the Philippines due to the massive flooding in Thailand. The theme of this year’s Miss Earth edition will be “Smile for Earth, for All”.
On October 27, in a letter sent to all contestants and directors, Lorraine Schuck, Executive Vice President of Carousel Productions, said, “To continue to to hold Miss Earth in Thailand would be very insensitive and irresponsible on our part. Accordingly, we have decided to change the venue of Miss Earth 2011 from Bangkok, Thailand to where it all started: the Philippines. We are at this very moment planning and lining up meaningful activities for you that will be true to our mission as beauties for a cause. In our workshops, we shall discuss these natural calamities and what we can do to control their effects on our respective countries.” said the letter.”
