The excitement mounts at ECO-UNESCO as 2010 Young Environmentalist Awards’ projects start arriving!!
After months of correspondance with schools and extensive organisation, it was truly momentous to physically see the projects arrive at the office!! It was amazing to see the projects ‘in the flesh’ after all the discussion about them with the group members and teachers/leaders. It must have been even more satisfying for the latter, after all the hardwork and dedication they had put in over the previous months on their action projects!! I can say, we were in no way disappointed by the ‘real thing’ and all the team here at ECO-UNESCO want to send out a unanamous ‘CONGRATULATIONS’ to all the groups on the quality of thier projects!!! So far this years projects seem even more innovative and sustainable than previous years’.
However, while Young Environmentalist Groups can now take a breather, us here at ECO-UNESCO cannot afford the luxury! We will be as busy as bees over the next month looking through all the amazing projects. I can tell you now, it will not be an easy job making the shortlisting but we will be helped by external expert judges- thankfully!! We will be in contact with all the groups directly in the coming weeks regarding shortlisting and the details of the Showcase and Awards ceremony. We are all looking forward to seeing you all in May and getting the opportunity to talk more about all your incredible action!!!! Again… WELL DONE!!!!!
