ESPOO, Finland, Nov. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet / --

The international declaration on the Circular Economy was also signed at the 
International Awards Ceremony of the 20th Energy Globe World Award in Espoo 

The 20th Energy Globe World Award was an absolute highpoint in the history of 
the world's foremost environmental prize, with the submission of over 2,000 
pioneering environmental projects from 187 countries in its anniversary year. 
Guests such as former Indian Environment Minister Maneka Gandhi, Energy 
Director of UNIDO Tareq Emtairah, Honorary President of the Club of Rome Anders 
Wijkman, President of the Global Chamber Platform Christoph Leitl, Chair of the 
London Assembly Jennette Arnold and many more came to Espoo to present the 
awards to the nominees from all over the world in five categories, Earth, Fire, 
Water, Air, Youth and the special category "Energy for All". Energy Globe 
founder Wolfgang Neumann was delighted with the positive response, "Everyone 
was overwhelmed by the solutions to our environmental problems that were

A particularly important step for the future of humanity was the signing of a 
declaration of intent on the promotion and implementation of the Circular 
Economy as the basis for successful, sustainable cooperation between business, 
consumers and politics. It was signed by the Global Chamber Platform, the Club 
of Rome, UNIDO and Energy Globe. As a consequence, a master plan will now be 
developed to successfully implement the Circular Economy through a 
collaboration of politics, business and consumers worldwide to create a healthy 
and sustainable environment. Christoph Leitl, the initiator of this declaration 
of intent and president of the Global Chamber Platform, is confident, "We 
managed to successfully reduce the hole in the ozone layer through sustainable 
action, and we will succeed in doing the same with climate change."  

The livestream was also very popular. It transmitted the entire event 
sustainably all over the world and was watched enthusiastically by thousands of 
people. This was also demonstrated by the number of questions sent to the 
Energy Globe chatroom, which had difficulty coping with the onslaught. 

The winner in the Water category was a project from Morocco that allows 
drinking water to be harvested from clouds. In the Earth category, the winner 
was a recycling project in Colombia, and in the Fire category, the prize was 
awarded to a project in London, in which urban transportation was switched to 
electric buses. There were two winners in the Air category; from Austria an 
automated painting system for ships which substantially minimises energy 
consumption and therefore emissions, and the Espoo project for an emission-free 
city. The jury awarded first place in the Youth category to a novel 
communication tool for NGOs, and in the special category "Energy for All", a 
project in Indonesia supplying power to schools, hospitals and houses for the 
first time won through against many other equally excellent initiatives. More 
information about all the nominees and the winners is available at
