Alexandra Magaard // 13 December 2014 // #GoingGreen
Hi everyone! I just wanted to remind everyone about the two project events taking place this week. The Going-Green 2014 team is excited to welcome everyone to our final events in Dusseldorf tomorrow and in Berlin this Friday. We have been thoroughly impressed with everyone's hard work this school year and as well, everyone's project submissions. As well, I wanted to mention our "most popular award contest" (conducted on our Facebook page) for the last time. Voting closes at 6pm tomorrow. Make sure you support your favorite ideas! We are looking forward to seeing you all soon, and until then, when the going gets tough, the tough go green. Alex
