SSE loves an award, so always happy to point out those who’ve earned some recognition in whatever form….
– the Enterprising People Partnership in Bristol has been named as the "most enterprising place in South West England", making it the regional winner of the DTI’s ‘Enterprising Britain
2006’ competition, "an annual national contest to reward towns, cities
or areas of any size across the country that are best improving
economic prospects and encouraging enterprise in their regions". More info about EPP via the link
– Echoing Green, the US-based organisation, announces its line-up of Fellows for 2006 (we blogged about the nominees before). Echoing Green was set up in 1997 to "spark
social change by identifying, investing and supporting the world’s most
exceptional emerging leaders and the organizations they launch".
– And from their site, not an award but certainly recognition, some young social entrepreneurs were on the cover of Newsweek the other week, an article which is worth a read; look forward to UK-based magazines following suit soon ;0)
