On November 7, 2013 at the Sustainia Award Ceremony, Olafur Eliasson led the audience in an interactive Little Sun performance at Copenhagen’s Royal Danish Theatre – a collective experience of sustainable solar light in action. A sea of hundreds of Little Suns, coordinated movement, and the elegance of the Royal Danish Theatre combined to produce a stunning short film and event.
The Sustainia Award is an annual international award given to a solution, technology, or project with a significant potential to help build a more sustainable future. From a list of 100 sustainable solutions, the Sustainia100, an award committee led by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger reviews and selects a winner that is revealed at the grand Sustainia Award Ceremony in Copenhagen every autumn. Sustainia invites everyone to have their say, review the solutions, and cast votes for the most inspiring solution. The solution with most votes receives Sustainia Community Award.
The nominees for Sustainia Award represent ten sectors: Health, Resources, Energy, Education, IT, Fashion, Food, City Planning, Transportation, and Buildings. Covering a wide range of sectors and countries, the list of nominees provides a guide to available solutions globally.
