Following the enormous success of the last multimedia competition, VinylPlus has re-launched its Sustainable Thinking Platform, the online community for young people from all around the world to discuss and learn about sustainability issues. More than 2,500 people from over 90 different countries had signed up to join the 2010 edition.
Following detailed deliberations by the judging panel, the winners of the second edition of the Vinyl 2010 Sustainable Thinking Platform multimedia competition have been announced.
The 2008-2009 competition represented the second such initiative by Vinyl 2010. Driven by the underlying theme of Sustainable Development, young people aged 18-30 from across Europe and beyond joined the community to express their views on one of the key challenges facing our planet.
