We are delighted to share this good news from the Cape Town Green Map project leader, Arne Purves, Professional Officer in the City's Sustainable Resource Management division:
"The Cape Town Green Map is proud to have been a part of the award winning 2010 Green Goal program, the environmental programme for the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup that was held in South Africa June/July 2010. Recognition from the IOC is a huge honor and has ensured that the City of Cape Town's 2010 Green Goal programme really sets the standard for "Greening" large sporting events into the future."
Winning the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Sport and Environment Award is truly a great achievement! Our congratulations to Arne, Philip Todres, Glen Adams, the City of Cape Town and everyone who contributed to the Green Maps and Green Goal programme. Please visit their wonderful website to learn about this remarkable and ongoing effort.
