Creecy emphasised the importance of environmental literacy in aiding long-term sustainable thinking, and spoke of the departments intention to further develop their public environmental awareness programme. “Sustainable development is only possible if it is underpinned and informed by an environmentally literate society, one where everybody has an understanding and the skills and motivation to take responsible decisions that consider his or her relationship to natural systems, communities and future generations.”

Hosted by Enviropaedia, the Eco-Logic awards recognises those individuals, organisations, products and services that are making a difference and actively contributing to the conservation of the planet. With 44 finalists across 12 categories, this year’s entries set the benchmark for ecological thinking, with innovative water-saving solutions, fossil fuel initiatives, eco-friendly schools, conservation training, recycling and waste management, passionate youth programmes and more.

“These awards aim to put the spotlight on our eco-champions, so that they can get the recognition they deserve. Our wish for all the participants, is for them to secure the ongoing support they need to continue their good work,” says David Parry-Davies, publisher of Enviropaedia and founder of the awards.
