Among the delegates were also Chair of the Board Gabriele Brennhaugen and Board member May-Lise Talgø, aiming at making new contacts and promoting the Rachel Carson Prize.

Some 40 environmental prizes were represented, and international capacities were among the laureates as well as the external speakers. 

- It was really inspiring to have the opportunity to be among all these involved and strong personalities, who have all contributed to making a difference, says Gabriele Brennhaugen. - We appreciate very much that we were invited, and want to use this network to make our prize more known and to search for good candidates, she says.
