UK-GBC today announced the 2016 Rising Star Award is open for nominations.
The award was launched in 2012 in memory of Mel and her work communicating ideas on green buildings and sustainability using social media.
The gives nominees the opportunity to gain recognition for their achievements and I am very proud to be involved for the fourth year.
You can find out more about the award on the UK-GBC website, where you will also find a nominations form.
Su Butcher has written a great blog post on why you should nominate someone on her Just Practicing blog.
Whether you decide to nominate someone or not, I hope you will join us in congratulating the eventual winner next year.
I’m pleased to confirm the date for this years picnic.
Wine, nibbles and games will be order of the day and all – including children – are very welcome.
We’ll meet on Gloucester Green which is the NE-most corner of Regents Park (east of The Broadwalk and London Zoo, just north of the Gloucester Gate entrance) from 12pm onwards.
The Royal Parks website now features a slightly less helpful Google map than the previous version, but it should be self explanatory, but if you get stuck you can tweet me on the day.
Closest tube is Camden Town.
Should we need it the backup venue will once again be the beer garden at the Edinboro Castle. We’ve not had weather-related cause to use it in previous years, but usually end up there for a drink at the end of the afternoon.
I hope to see lots of you there, and to another enjoyable afternoon.
