Hi Reef Checkers,
We are nominated for a Katerva People's Choice Award and the voting takes place for around another week as winners are announced on January 30th. What are the Katerva Awards? Well, I wasn't that familiar with Katerva, but I just got online, registered and voted (took about 3 minutes total). Here's some information about the organization and their awards (taken directly from their website):“If the Nobel Society had an award for sustainability, it would resemble the Katerva Awards, a new international prize for the most promising ideas and efforts to advance the planet toward sustainability.”
The Katerva Awards shine a global spotlight on the world’s most promising sustainability ideas and serves as a means to gather together the world’s best sustainability innovators. The Katerva Awards are the pinnacle of global sustainability recognition. Through them, the best ideas on the planet are identified, refined and accelerated toward impact at a global level.
Katerva Award nominees must undergo a rigorous evaluation process to be eligible for the grand prize. The practical, strategic, scientific, social and commercial aspects of each project are thoroughly analyzed through a meticulous 10-month review process. More than 800 individuals participate in the nominee identification and adjudication process, including six filtering phases and twelve stages of focused review.
Katerva isn’t looking for ideas that will improve the world in small increments. We are looking for paradigm-busting ideas. Our Award winners don’t simply move the needle when it comes to efficiency, lifestyle or consumption; they change the game entirely. This is a celebration of radical innovation and an acceleration of much needed change
We are asking you to take just 3 minutes to go to this link, register and vote for us in the Ecosystem and Conservation category. It really isn't that difficult, I just did it, but we need all the votes we can get to keep us in the running for this prestigious award. Please consider taking the few minutes to support us! http://katerva.org/vote/
