The Herald today launches the second Global Game Changers Awards, in partnership with Innovators Magazine and supported by BAE Systems, the Centre for Work-based Learning, Circular Glasgow, City of Glasgow College and ScottishPower.
The awards recognise and reward innovation and sustainability at an international level.
They also highlight the opportunities and challenges faced across all business sectors and aim to help develop a more open, sustainable and innovative global economy.
Alison McRae, senior director at Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, said Circular Glasgow, the chamber-led collaboration that works to future-proof the city’s small and medium-sized enterprises, was “proud” to be sponsoring the Circular Breakthrough Award.
She said: “This award recognises innovative businesses successfully adopting design-led thinking, circular economy principals and closed loop business models, creating sustainable future economies for generations to come.”
David Coyne, director of the Centre for Work-based Learning, said: “The Centre is delighted to be sponsoring the Global Game Changers, Innovating in STEM Education and Training award.
“In a rapidly changing world it is important that STEM education is current and flexible, giving everyone the opportunity to develop the human and technical skills needed to thrive.”
Barry Carruthers, Head of Innovation and Sustainability at ScottishPower, said: “We have to innovate if we are to thrive in the future. This can take many forms and be delivered by many people, so we must encourage fresh minds and the next generation of young pioneers.”
Douglas Morrison, STEM and Innovation Lead at City of Glasgow College, said: “The Global Game Changers Awards present an excellent opportunity for us to recognise the outstanding work of businesses and individuals who have embraced the intrapreneurial spirit.”
