ECOTIC, Alucro, the National Association for Consumer Protection and Promotion of Programs and Strategies in Romania and Hotnews.ro, under the auspices of the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, is holding the fifth edition of the Awards Gala for a Clean Environment!
The Clean Environment Awards Gala is a form of recognition and promotion of environmental protection campaigns. Thus, the organizers award each year the best projects and examples of good practices designed to improve environmental conditions in local communities, as well as social responsibility programs developed by companies, public institutions and non-governmental organizations.
Starting with 2009, the Clean Environment Awards Gala brought together laureates from both business - Rompetrol, Vodafone Romania, Siemens Romania - from educational institutions, military units, but also environmental NGOs, such as Let's Do It, Romania. Any legal entity in Romania has the possibility to be part of the winners of the Gala, the condition being that the project carried out should aim at environmental protection.
This year's edition takes place on the online platform dedicated to the Clean Environment Awards Gala, hosted here. The projects were registered following the transmission on dedicated email addresses of the form available here and on www.alucro.ro. The form included the description of the project dedicated to environmental protection or accountability, but also contact details of the organizers of the project proposed for registration in the Awards Gala for a Clean Environment. Registrations were made between October 21 and December 05, 2013.
The organizers want this year to highlight new initiatives, projects and relevant experiences in the field of environmental protection. The popularization of these practices brings closer to each of us the contribution of those actively involved in consolidating a responsible attitude towards the values of the environment in which we live, these being examples to follow in the future.
The calendar of the Gala is as follows:
- Entries in the contest will be made until December 5, 2013;
- The judging of the registered projects will take place between December 6 and 9, 2012, and the winners of the Clean Environment Awards Gala will be announced on December 10.
