Letter by MP Yvette Cooper

Yorkshire's Finest Environmental Awards 2009

The Climate Change Award Given By The Environmental Agency
The Gujarat Rivers Talk To Yorkshire Rivers Project

Can I thank you and the university for the support you are giving to Brian Lewis and his colleagues and congratulate you all for having the imagination to develop the Rivers Project and to be acknowledged as the winners of the Environmental Agency's Climate Change Award.

Brian Lewis tells me that without the commitment of Dr Rajendrasind Jadeja and his friends/colleagues it would not have developed in such a positive way. As a token of the fact that this is a co-operative venture he intends to pass the trophy onto the university on his next visit.

The Secretary of State for the Environment (Ed Miliband) made the award on a civic occasion but as a result of this joint effort three members of the UK Cabinet knows about the Gujarat Rivers Talk to Yorkshire Rivers Project. Like your organisations we see the battle against climate change is a world wide problem.

The delegation led by Professor Falguni Bharateeya will be made most welcome when she comes to Yorkshire to take part in the Global Perspectives in Adult Learning conference. I hope that I am able to meet them when they visit my constituency.


Yvette Cooper MP
