Announcement: Meet the 2010 SEED Winners!
The SEED Initiative is thrilled to announce its 2010 SEED Award Winners! From bamboo bicycles to fly-fisheries, from businesswomen's collectives to inspired youth, these entrepreneurs are building a more sustainable world, starting in their own communities.
Amongst the initiatives who will now receive from SEED a package of tailor-made support are initiatives making great strides in solar energy, biofuel, organic farming, waste disposal, recycled craft and tourism. This year saw exciting enterprises, particularly in agriculture. The 2010 focus on Africa shone the spotlight on over 26 African initiatives and with support from SEED they can now scale-up their activities across the continent.
Choosing winners was tough, with applications from almost 60 countries, but those selected 'exemplify the Green Economy,' says UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner. The winners prove that, with a little creativity, a commitment to your local environment and tackling poverty in your community can be part of business.
