Important recognition for ENERGY GLOBE
As a sensation for the ENERGY GLOBE Award, this year’s international ENERGY GLOBE television gala will serve as the opening event for the informal meeting of the EU environment ministers on 14 April 2009 in Prague.
Political VIPs from around the world will meet at the gala event in the realm of the Czech EU presidency: Prime Minister of the Czech Republic and EU Council President Mirek Topolanék, EU Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas, Czech Vice-Premier and Environment Minister Martin Bursík, and the environment ministers of the EU, EFTA and the new EU membership candidate nations are expected to attend the event. Among the invited guests are also climate expert Carol Browner (climate advisor of US President Barack Obama), Dr. R. K. Pachauri, head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) etc. International show stars will complement the program, which will be broadcast worldwide.
The actual stars, however, are the people and organizations from 90 nations who submitted projects. From among them, the ENERGY GLOBE winners in the five categories as well as the World Award winner will be premiered.
For the ENERGY GLOBE this is a new highlight and an additional important recognition after the award presentations for 2007 and 2008 in the European Parliament in Brussels. The invitation of the ENERGY GLOBE to Prague again emphasizes the importance and valuation of this worldwide renowned award that showcases environmentally friendly and energy efficient projects from 111 submitting countries.
The ENERGY GLOBE has been awarded annually since 1999 in the realm of a television gala broadcast worldwide. It distinguishes projects from all over the world that conserve our resources such as energy and water or that utilize renewable or emission-free forms of energy. The Award is presented in the categories Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Youth. In 2009 the ENERGY GLOBE celebrates ten years of activity.
