Hello from Tokyo. It has been a hot and humid summer in Tokyo. It was also hot and humid last year, when the Tokyo Olympics were held, and for that reason, the marathon venue was changed to Hokkaido, which is typically cooler than the capital. According to the Japan Weather Association, the average summer temperature in Japan is increasing at a rate of 1.16°C per 100 years. Indeed, compared to the early twentieth century, the annual number of extremely hot days (a daily temperature of 35°C or higher) has increased 3.3 times, and tropical nights (daily temperature of 25°C or higher) has increased 2.7 times.

Ukraine power company’s campaign to save storks scoops the IPRA Golden World Global Contribution Award 2022

The Global Contribution Award is given for PR with an objective of meeting one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The 2022 winner is Ukrainian power company DTEK Grids. The brilliant campaign #EnergyWings addressed an issue common to many power companies – that storks nest on the poles and get electrocuted. DTEK Grids’ solution was to build special platforms to support the bird’s heavy nests. Otherwise, they fall on the wires, the birds die, and customers are left without electricity. The project met the UN’s sustainable development goal 9 to build infrastructure that promotes sustainable industrialization, as well as goal 15 to protect biodiversity.
