Representing the Selection Committee, Professor Alfred Opubor, commented that “the initiative brings us hope. With approaches that are easy to carry out, and replicable, PRI have clearly demonstrated we can produce food where it is needed in a sustainable way”.
Second prize went to Solvatten AB, for their initiative “The Solvatten solar safe water system“. Profesor Alfred commented that “Solvatten shows us how we can use the power of sunlight, which is everywhere, to live in a sustainable way”.
In third place came the Sadhana Forest organisation for their initiative “Sadhana Forest“. ”Great ideas,” said Professor Alfred, “attract people. And today, looking at Sadhana Forest we see that volunteerism is not dead, but very much alive”.
“Great ideas have the power to engage us - to volunteer to help make the change towards sustainability.”
