The Archant London Environmental Award acknowledges the achievement of talented people, organisations or groups for their contribution they have made to the
local environment via membership of an eco-friendly organisation or on a
larger scale through involvement with a local community project.
It was a great pleasure to be part of the Archant London Environmental Awards. It's wonderful to see great green initiatives to support a sustainable community in London and we'd like to thank Archant, Tate and Lyle, Swiftflow, Thames Water, The POD for greener schools, Hackney Council, LRS Consultancy and Xero for their sponsorship of the awards. It's so important to recognise the work for the benefit of our community and our environment.
All life depends on a healthy balanced ecosystem for present and future generations. The United Nations declared 2010 International Year of Biodiversity. It's a celebration of life on Earth and of the value of biodiversity for our lives and this makes it a very suitable time for organising the Whale of a Time Workshop.
