An Award for the India Project!

This evening I attended the Yorkshire Post Inaugural Environment Awards dinner. Brian Lewis' project about creating awareness of climate change, "Yorkshire Rivers talk to Gujarati Rivers" or short "The Rivers Project" had been shortlisted for an award in the category Climate Change, so he and I went to the Queens Hotel to attend this dinner. We were joined by Jane Weatherby from Northern College Barnsley and Polly from the Alternative Energy Institute in Hebden Bridge.

The evening was moderated by TV presenter Julia Bradbury. An excellent dinner was served, followed by a brief speech by the UK Secretary of State for the Department of Energy and Climate Change, Ed Miliband. Then the awards - and our "Rivers Project" got it! Brian and Jane picked up the trophy, and I took the video.

After back from the dinner, I prepared a brief summary web site, because I did not yet have one about the specifics of this project - the site will be made to look nicer sometime in the future, but for now this should be ok to convey just some information:
