Energy Globe Award for nepal 2017

3. November 2017

This years Energy Globe Award winner for Nepal is the organization KTK Belt situated in Kathmandu, Nepal.

KTK-BELT, INC. is a non-profit organization. It’s mission is to catalyze new models of biodiversity conservation and environmental learning in eastern Nepal. It works with teachers, farmers, youth, and women to create a ‘Vertical University’ that will span from Koshi Tappu Wildlife Sanctuary (67 m.) to Kanchenjunga (8,586 m.), the third tallest peak in the world. The idea is to give a framework to local farmers to become ‘professors’ of the Vertical University, to share their indigenous knowledge while also physically conserving threatened species and landscapes.

The award was handed over by the Vice President of the Federal Austrian Economic Chamber, Dr. Richard Schenz during our networking dinner of our business delegation to Nepal in Kathmandu.

The Energy Globe Award is the world’s most prominent environmental award given annually to outstanding projects focusing on energy efficiency, renewable energies and conservation of resources.
