Govardhan Eco-Village Receives IAA Olive Crown Award

The India Chapter of the International Advertising Association (an international body of Media & Advertisers) conducted the Olive Crown Awards for the year 2013 in Mumbai on the 1st of April. A Special Jury Award was conferred upon the Govardhan Eco village (GEV) in recognition of its continued efforts towards environmental sustainability. On behalf of the Govardhan Eco village, the award was collected by Shri Hrishikesh Mafatlal, Shri Kushal Desai and Shriman Gauranga Dasa.

Under the inspiration and guidance of Radhanath Swami a dedicated community began the development of the GEV in 2003 with the aim of demonstrating the principles of self-sufficiency and localized economy and highlighting the importance of living in harmony with nature by presenting a sustainable living model. Gradually they have developed fundamental aspects of the eco-village including organic farming, cow protection, education, rural development, alternative energy, eco-friendly constructions and sustainable living.
