ECOTIC wrapped up 2015 with the already traditional For a Clean Environment - Awards Gala, a well-deserved festive moment for all those who have been involved, alongside the organization, in actions dedicated to the environment: from the collection of waste, to educating the civic spirit and changing mentalities. It was an event filled with the joy and emotion of seeing things done; there were people on stage who brought in a type of enthusiasm that should be present in any action related to our future.
In the Gala's seven editions, the number of registered projects went up visibly. 87 projects were registered for the current edition, which is the highest number so far. Dedicated to recycling, greening, caring for nature or raising awareness, all registered projects proved that the civic spirit and pro-environment attitude can be educated and encouraged to be ultimately put in the service of the community.
