Solar Impulse Pilots receive The Chromy Award 2015, 19 Jan 2015
Abu Dhabi – January 20, 2015 CHROMY AWARD in the World
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, Founders and Pilots of Solar Impulse, the First Round-The-World Solar Flight, receive the prestigious Chromy Award 2015.
At the occasion of the World Future Energy Summit and Sustainability Week from 19-22 January 2015, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the artist Anna Chromy honored the two scientists and adventurers with the Chromy Award, a distinction for personalities who work for a better future of mankind in fields such as the environment, clean technology, sustainable development and many others.
Solar Impulse, with its different scientific and technical partners, is creating new solutions in different areas, but primarily the human effort of our two adventurers will be an example of vision, determination, and resilience for the younger generations, making them worthy successors of previous Laureates, such as H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, Tony Juniper, Philippe Pozzo di Borgo and AMMA.
The Trophy of the Chromy Award is a small reproduction of Anna Chromy’s monumental Cloak of Conscience in white Carrara marble, with a height of five meters and a weight of 50 tons the largest work ever sculpted into a single block. The artist has conceived this outstanding sculpture as a symbol for the return to real values, such as Empathy, Sharing, Sustainability, a sign that all is not lost and a better future is possible.
