LSD - save our planetRecently Aidan Gillan devised a project in Landmark’s Self-Expression and Leadership Programme which created an award ceremony for environmental sustainability. The Save our Planet Award ceremony took place on August 11th at the Clarion Hotel in Sligo, Ireland.

Winners of the award, which were designed to recognize both local and national environmental heroes, included anti-fracking group Love Leitrim, who were acknowledged by Arum Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson) for their work.

Love Leitrim’s Eddie Mitchell accepted the award on behalf of the group, saying:

“Love Leitrim is everyone in this room and beyond nationally and internationally. We are not anti-development we are pro-development. Everyone has a role to play in stopping fracking which is a threat to the sustainability of our environment, indigenous industries, as well as the health of our communities.”
