I am honoured to have been shortlisted for this year’s Sheila McKechnie Foundation Environmental Campaigner Award, for my work on TEQs.
The Sheila McKechnie Foundation was established in 2005 to help develop a new generation of campaigners who are tackling the root causes of injustice. Set up in memory of Dame Sheila McKechnie, the Foundation is dedicated to helping campaigners create positive and lasting social change.
They run programmes for individuals and groups providing support, advice and a place to share information on key areas of effective campaigning: from strategy, tactics, and targets to evaluating successful campaigns. For more information, take a look at their website.
I’d like to thank them for their work and for the useful advice and support they have given me regarding moving TEQs towards implementation in the UK.
I’d also like to congratulate the worthy winner – Alex Randall of the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT), who is working to make political action and peaceful protest on climate change an activity practiced by everyone. He set up the humorous CheatNeutral.com and is keen to explore the possibilities inherent in social networking media to draw attention to the issue. CAT are also the authors of the outstanding Zero Carbon Britain report, which is built around TEQs and shows how Britain could achieve zero carbon emissions within twenty years.
Do take a look at it and the other exceptional work they are doing.
