Lille lived up to its ambitions
This year Ceremony was held at the end of high profile event "Communicate your buildings energy rating - 7 magical years of the Display® Campaign", with Pekka Sauri, deputy mayor of Helsinki (FI), announcing the winners as the president of this year’s Jury.
Mr Sauri said: "The judging was not easy at all. All finalist had shown many positive efforts and it could go either way. With different jury, the results might be quite different too."
At the end, Lille (France) proved to be one step beyond and thanks to their unique communication campaign and activities through the last year, the French city won the TCA Award 2011!
The second and third prize went to Cork County (Ireland) and Velenje (Slovenia) respectively.
Once again, the clear and strong message is sent: By communicating your buildings performance you can achieve many positive things and improve your buildings performance as well as became leader of energy efficiency in public buildings in your region and country! Turn confrontation into communication!
