NAEE trustee, Gabrielle Back, has been honoured as International Green World Ambassador. This recognition comes as a result of the environmental success of her CREATIVE RECYCLING & CLIMATE CHANGE SURVEYANCE Project which won a 2015 Green Apple Environment Award. As a result of that success, her winning paper is to be published in The Green Book, an annual work of reference on environmental best practice that is distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world by The Green Organisation.
The award judges commented:
“This educational project encouraged thousands of school children to study current and past local butterfly populations as indicators of climate change. It also had them creating butterfly artwork using recycled items. The studies did show population decline in some species, which has raised awareness in the children, and the artworks have been combined into a mural on display at Holy Trinity Church in Coventry – helping to raise thousands of pounds for Myton Hospice .”
Gabrielle’s winning paper goes forward for further judging and entry into The Green World Awards for the Environment; the campaign to find the greenest organisation in the world which takes place in Seoul, South Korea in October.
