(TibetanReview.net, Dec09, 2018) – Board Chairman Richard Gere of Washington-based International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) was on Dec 7 honoured by a government associated German organization for his sustainability and human rights work, said ICT Dec 7.

He was stated to have received the Honorary Award of the German Sustainability Awards 2019 for his advocacy and lifetime commitment for human rights and for his “work to draw attention and practical solutions to humanitarian crises rooted in injustice, inequality and intolerance”.

Those who attended the award ceremony were reported to include Germany’s former President Christian Wulff, the Federal Minister for Justice and Consumer Protection Dr Katarina Barley, the Federal Minister for Environment Svenja Schulze, and the Federal Minister for Development Cooperation Dr Gerd Müller.

The prize by the Stiftung Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis eV, instituted in 2008, awards exemplary sustainability achievements in economy, municipalities and research.

The report said that with five competitions, over 800 competitors and 2,000 guests at the gala presentation, the German Sustainability Award is the biggest award of its kind in Europe.

The award is presented every year in collaboration with the German federal government, local authority umbrella organisations, trade associations, civic organizations and research institutes, Said the ICT in its report.
