What a week of celebrations it has been here at Eco Evolution!
The week began with a trip to Salerno to celebrate our Silver wedding anniversary. Hard to believe its been 25 years since we tied the knot! The weather, scenery, locally grown and sourced foods and wines were just amazing. Definitely a return trip on the cards in the not too distant future 🙂 On Thursday night while we were enjoying our last night in Salerno I received a message telling me that I had won an award at the Blog Awards Ireland.
Blog Awards Ireland
This year was my fourth to be in the final of the Blog Awards Ireland. With a quick check on Twitter I soon discovered I had in fact won a Silver award for the Best Blog Post category. It is an honour and a privilege to receive this award given that according to the Blog Awards Ireland statistics there was 4,000 nominations, 1,400 entries and 80,000 public votes for all the blogs!
I would like to extend a sincere thank you to those that nominated my blog for the awards and to those that voted for me in the public vote. A special shout out to all nominees, finalists and award winners. Keep writing about the things you are passionate about and I hope to see you all next year 🙂
The Public Sector Excellence in Business Award
On Friday we were presented with the Public Sector Excellence in Business Award for our contribution to the renewable energy sector in Ireland. Eco Evolution are hydro design specialists and offer advice and consultancy services to the public sector. The public sector is an important sector for us as it is through public projects that showcase these renewable technologies that public awareness and interest is created and increased. By supporting and implementing smaller scale renewable energy projects around the country the Public Sector can also help to educate the public more about these technologies and therefore possibly develop public acceptance and alleviate public concern about larger developments. The Public Sector needs to lead by example so it is important that they are seen to embrace these renewable technologies to help combat the effects of climate change and to help meet our 2020 targets.
