Three associations rewarded for ‘impactful’ legacy programs

Three associations have been chosen for this year’s Incredible Impacts Programme, run collaboratively by ICCA and BestCities Global Alliance.

Ecocity Builders and the BCIT Ecocity Centre, International Society for Microbial Ecology (ISME) and Soroptimist International (SI) will each receive a US$7,500 grant towards future projects, in recognition of their hosted events excelling in areas such as sustainability, accessibility and ecology.

“The three winners have demonstrated their efforts and how they raised awareness of, and positively influenced their communities through education on critical issues such as safe sanitation, sustainability and recent advances in microbial ecology,” said Senthil Gopinath, ICCA CEO.

“We’re delighted to award them grants to support their endeavours as they continue important work on their legacy programmes.”

Lesley Williams, managing director of BestCities congratulated the winners for the “remarkable contributions” they have made within their communities.

“There’s never been a more important time to showcase the major milestones our industry can overcome, and we hope that this year’s winners provide inspiration on the big or small ways that impact can be made,” Williams said.
