Green Globe Awards nominations
Hollywood actors have the Golden Globe Awards. At Queen’s, environmentalists now have the Green Globe Awards.
Organizers of the 2010 Commerce and Engineering Environmental Conference (CEEC) are launching the new awards which are given out to a person or organization in both the Queen’s community and Kingston community who have made a positive impact on green initiatives.
Susan Kim, one of the CEEC organizers, feels it is important to reward people who are working hard to help the environment.
“If you were to talk to anybody on campus, there are always names that pop up for people who are undertaking green initiatives,” Ms. Kim says. “This is a way to recognize those people and organizations who work on a grassroots level, people who the general public may not recognize.”
The nomination deadline is February 15 by 5 p.m. Details are available at www.ceec.ca or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will receive a trophy and recognition for their efforts on their website. CEEC is a two-day conference on clean energy and environmental services running March 5-6.
