Project Earth Rock was awarded first prize in the communications category of the Energy Institute Awards in November 2017.
The EI Awards is a competition run by the Energy Institute for those shaping the world's energy future. The awards celebrate the achievements of the energy industry across the globe, giving recognition to individuals and organisations who take an innovative and responsible approach to solving the industry's challenges of providing society with clean, sustainable, low cost and dependable energy.
The winners of the 2017 EI Awards competition were announced on 9 November at the Sheraton Grand Park Lane Hotel in London in front of an audience of hundreds of industry leaders. The celebrations, which included a formal dinner in recognition of all of those shortlisted, were hosted by former England Rugby star and A Question of Sport team captain, Matt Dawson MBE.
Adam Garfunkel of Junxion, a supporter of Project Earth Rock, received the award on behalf of Big Green Machine. He said:
"We know that major shifts are required in how we generate energy and in reducing the amount that we use. It's vital the vibrancy of children and young people is harnessed to help bring about this shift. It was great being at the awards and seeing the energy industry recognise the huge potential of Project Earth Rock to inspire children to get involved.”
Jess Gold said:
"We started creating Project Earth Rock, a multi media scheme of work for sustainability in 2010. Whilst we hoped we would be enthusiastically received by the education sector as we have been, we never dreamed that the energy sector would recognise our achievements in this way. We are thrilled to receive this accolade."
