Award Winning Partnership

Once again we have caught the eyes of judges, this time it's an environmental body and we've been chosen as winners of the 'Best Sustainability Campaign in the Public Sector' by the Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment (IEMA).

The virtual ceremony on Friday 18th September awarded us with the honour and Sarah Mukherjee, CEO of IEMA, said, 'Bird Aware Solent demonstrated a clear commitment to positive social engagement, communication, and training campaigns with a diverse group of stakeholders. They won their category for effective planning and a strategic vision in protecting local nature reserves, while also engaging with policymakers, local government, and housing developments.'

ALSO! we were recognised as 'Highly Commended' in the Drum Social Media Awards in November.  Our social media activity was profiled from October 2019 to August 2020 and we picked up the accolade for our strategic thinking, innovation, effectiveness and tangible results.  What is most impressive about this is that the competition consisted of large creative agencies promoting household names.  For our small in-house team to be awarded is extremely fulfilling, in the knowledge that we are producing high quality and engaging content.  Follow us :) #BirdAware

Being honoured for the work we do is something we aspire to and it is amazing when it comes to fruition.  On a cold, damp December day on the banks of the Solent it helps to remember that the work we carry out is respected and makes a difference.

The support and guidance we receive from our Partners makes a huge impact on what we deliver so we hope you will share in our success too.  We will be sending certificates around to each of you shortly for displaying at your organisations - if and when this is possible.  Email spencer.dawson@havant.gov.uk if you haven't received one.
