Submitted by: Katerva

Categories: Sustainability, Ratings & Awards

Posted: Mar 17, 2014 – 06:10 PM EST

 

NEW YORK, Mar. 17 /CSRwire/ - While Katerva’s Global Award Council is deliberating to select the final 2013 Katerva Award winner, who will be announced in early April, we are pleased to announce the Katerva People’s Choice voting period is open. Voting began on March 7th and continues through March 28th. While the finalists are activating their own communities, Katerva invites all interested in innovation and sustainability to join the voting and explore these impressive finalists—50 innovations chosen because they represent real breakthrough for a more sustainable future.

You can view and vote at: katerva.net/home/accelerate/2013_award_nom.

"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 expert 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—energized, organized, and leveraged, holds the key to the world's most pressing challenges.
