ECOTIC ends 2015 with the already traditional Clean Environment Awards Gala, a well-deserved moment of balance for all those involved, along with the organization, in actions dedicated to a clean environment: waste collection, cultivating civic spirit and changing mindsets. It was an event full of the excitement and joy of the work done; there were people on stage who brought with them the enthusiasm that should not be missing in any endeavor related to our future.
During the seven editions, the number of registered projects and interested organizations increased visibly. At this edition, 87 projects were entered, most of them in an edition so far. Dedicated to recycling, greening, nature care or awareness, all the submitted projects have shown that the civic spirit and pro-environmental attitude can be cultivated and encouraged to be put, in the end, in the service of the community.
