On Wednesday evening Project Earth Rock received a commendation at the Rushlight Awards in the Sustainability Initiative category. This award is for the most significant programmes that help facilitate or advance the adoption of clean energy and other sustainable solutions across a community. Project Earth Rock is a multi media education resource for primary schools, launched in partnership with Camden Council in October 2014. Now at the end of its pilot phase it is in 120 primary schools. Big Green Machine, the producers of Project Earth Rock, were delighted that the judges recognised the importance of climate change education in primary schools even though it is not currently an obvious curriculum topic. Director Jess Gold, said: "We know that fighting climate change is essential and that education will enable children to play their part and help ensure that their parents get on board as well. Teachers and pupils have told us that they really enjoy using Project Earth Rock and the commendation of the Rushlight award judges will enable us to reach more UK and International schools "
