My Arms Wide Open Nominated for Prestigious Katerva Award for Game-Changing, Global Sustainability
VANCOUVER, BC, July 28, 2011 – In one short year, but with thousands of miles of sweat equity behind him, Warren Te Brugge and My Arms Wide Open, have been nominated for a Katerva Award. Dubbed the “Nobel Prize” for sustainability, a Katerva nomination recognizes those organizations with the potential to make the greatest strides towards a sustainable planet. The Katerva Awards shine a global spotlight on solutions to the world’s greatest challenges that are ingenious, scalable, feasible and impactful. Katerva seeks solutions that immeasurably shift the way business, consumption, lifestyle and efficiency work at a global level.
On March 30, almost one month after we had begun our original meeting in Cradock, the members of Iziko Labahlali 2 met on a videoconference call. When we run our videoconferences, we have a slightly different format. We spend a short amount of time together as a group and then we have individual conversations. Each person takes turns talking about the most important item they would like to discuss. They get feedback and support for about 15-20 minutes each. The meeting takes some time as you can imagine. However, the benefits of being able to not only hear but to see each other as we talk are tremendous.
