The NGDO [Non-Governmental Development Organisation] InteRed has received the “Olivo Solidario: el aceite de la vida” award in recognition of its 30 years of work in education in values.
The director of InteRed, Ana Arancibia, expressed her gratitude to the Lumière Foundation and the Carboneros Town Council for this initiative that promotes local culture, environmental sustainability and education in values. She said that this award is in recognition of the work InteRed has been doing for 30 years. It is an award to all the people during that time who contributed to carrying forward its mission at the service of education; to the people who have made and continue to make possible the right to quality education, women’s rights and gender equality. We thank the Teresian Association, our local partner organisations with whom we work hand in hand, volunteers, donors, partners, staff and organisations for all their dedication, trust and support. This award belongs to the entire InteRed family.
The Lumière Foundation Award, in collaboration with the town council of Carboneros in Jaén (Spain), is dedicating to InteRed a centenary olive tree located in the Eco Educational Park of this olive-growing village. The park, made up of 800 centenary olive trees, aims to be a world reference not only for nature conservation, but also for solidarity and harmony between peoples.
This park can be visited by the general public and especially by schools for activities related to nature, sustainability and human rights.
