“To solve the complex sustainability challenges we face as stewards of our planet, will require innovative solutions across a wide range of disciplines and economic sectors. Katerva provides a much needed and novel forum for this to happen, as evidenced by the innovation and entrepreneurship embodied by this year's 51 Finalists for the Katerva Award, “ states Antonio  J. Busalacchi, Jr, Director of the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) and Professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science at the University of Maryland, USA.

The Katerva Award Winner will be fostered through development stages by members of the Winner's Circle, a group of businesses and committed experts, with the aim of implementing the winning project for maximum impact.

In a deliberation process which began in July, the Katerva nominees were submitted to rigorous process of examination by experts in each of Katerva's ten categories: Food Security, Behavioral Change, Economy, Ecosystem Conversion, Gender Equality, Materials & Resources, Human Development, Energy & Power, Transportation and Urban Design. The Katerva Award, now in its second year, draws upon a vast network of experts from science, business, academia and finance, and more.  Once a nominee has been submitted, the project is carefully screened for eligibility. Eligible, projects are then rated for viability, scalability and impact. Finalists are the top five projects from each of the ten categories. In 2012, there are 51 Finalists due to a tie in one of the categories. The Category Winners will be announced on 30 January.

Only one project will be the Katerva Award Winner, also announced 30 January. This year the Katerva Award has a new feature: the People's Choice Award. All 50 finalists are eligible for the People's Choice Award. The public is invited to vote for the People's Choice Award from 14-29 January on the Katerva website, www.katerva.org.

“Katerva is not just interested in 'good' ideas, the ideas we are after will create big changes in how we live on this planet,” says Katerva's founder, innovation guru Terry Waghorn. Founded in 2010, “Katerva's approach places emphasis squarely on action for a sustainable future—creating and implementing solutions to sustainability-related concerns,” he says. Katerva is the first truly open worldwide platform for change.

Katerva comes from the Latin word caterva, meaning “crowd.” It's our belief that the wisdom of the crowd-- organized, holds the key to the world's most pressing challenges.
