The Cork Environmental Forum is hosting the 20th Environmental Awards Ceremony on Thursday, 10th December 2020 at 7pm - 9pm (GMT).
The Cork Environmental Forum (CEF) promotes sustainable development at a local level in the Cork region. Their vision is for “a sustainable world which prioritises environmental quality, protects and restores habitats and biodiversity, where consumption and economics take cognisance of the limitations of our one planet and where there is a fairer and more equitable share of the earth’s resources”. CEF was established in 1995 after being inspired by the Rio Earth Conference in 1992.
Frank Dorr and Eileen Lynch are the winners of CEF’s 2020 Community and Voluntary Award for leading the development of the Social and Health Education Project and Elders for Earth and spread the understanding of climate change at community level.
