European Cultural Award Ceremony 2020 in Bonn

The Lord Mayor of Bonn, Ashok-Alexander Sridharan, who will host the European Cultural Award in Bonn next year on 3rd October on the occasion of Beethoven’s 250th birthday, gave the laudation for the environmental initiative R20 AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT. “The award recognizes an initiative that aims to unite cities and regions from around the world in the fight against climate change and in achieving sustainable development goals,” he said. The R20 initiator is Arnold Schwarzenegger, who thanked him with a video message for the special award and appealed: “I have pursued many professions that always required a lot of work and stamina. It’s no different with environmental protection. It needs even more persuasion, because there are still enough people who don’t take the environmental crisis seriously.”
