Progressio's climate adaptation partnership initiative has been shortlisted for an award that celebrates young developers using digital technologies to turn the United Nations Millenium Development Goals into action.
European Youth Award (EYA) is a contest for young Europeans who creatively use Internet and mobiles to get action on the most pressing social issues of today. The EYA connects them with an international network of experienced entrepreneurs, business leaders and renowned experts from the multimedia-sector and provides a stage for showcasing their projects.
ClimatePro has been shortlisted for this award in the category 'Go Green!'. The partnership scheme was created in response to the growing need for communities to adapt to a changing climate. It brings together individuals, groups and companies looking to make a committment to reduce their own carbon emissions and at the same time invest in strengthening the resilience of the communities who are most directly affected by climate change.
Award winners will be announced in late November.
