On the evening of 7 November, the Climate Reality Awards for Spain were presented in Madrid to recognise the fight against the climate crisis by rewarding people, companies and institutions that have been active in this field.
Our Ambassador Irina, head of the Plant-for-the-Planet Ambassadors Network in Spain, received the award for the most outstanding Young Personality of the Year.
Other award winners include the Spanish Minister for Ecological Change, Teresa Ribera, who received the Public Personality of the Year Award, the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF), winner of the Award for the Most Outstanding NGO and the Centro de Innovación en Tecnología para el Desarrollo Humano (Centre for Innovation in Human Development Technology) of the Madrid Polytechnic University, awarded as the best research project.
The Climate Reality Awards are an initiative of the Climate Reality Project, the organization that Al Gore, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and former Vice President of the United States, founded and now leads. The organization's goal is to raise awareness of the risks of the climate crisis and support action for change. Al Gore is personally dedicated to training the more than 15,000 climate experts of The Climate Reality Project, 230 of whom are in Spain.
Almost 400 people, including celebrities, politicians, journalists, businessmen and members of social and environmental organisations, took part in the gala, demonstrating the great interest of society in this topic.
