International PARK(ing) Day will be celebrated on Friday, 19 September and for the second year in a row Bermuda is participating!
PARK(ing) Day is an annual event, begun in San Francisco nine years ago, where parking spaces are taken over and converted to alternative uses. The first PARK(ing) Day featured a single parking spot and by 2011 this global movement encompassed 975 parks in 162 cities across 35 countries and six continents.
The event is designed to expand the public spaces in a city and the alternatives can range from mini-parks to play areas to spots of respite in the middle of a busy day.
The Ministry of Education and Business Development is pleased to announce the launch of the Technology Innovation Awards nomination process for 2014. TechAwards were inaugurated in 2006 and will be presented for the ninth consecutive year.
Dr. the Hon. E Grant Gibbons, JP, MP Minister of Education and Economic Development stated: "The Department of E-Commerce established the TechAwards to recognize the Bermuda residents and Bermuda-based organizations and companies which have provided technology solutions that have inspired us, made our lives better, and showcased Bermuda as a location that consistently acts as a launch pad for not just innovation, but achievement as well. The TechAwards go a long way in showcasing Bermuda as a sophisticated technology and e-business jurisdiction every day, everywhere, for everyone. We look forward to the public's participation in this community-driven effort as we launch the nomination process to seek out those innovative achievements worthy of merit."
