On Saturday, October 10th 2015, I went to Chicago to attend an awards ceremony where CoThrive received a Golden Innovator award in the Media Sector of the Wheel of Co-Creation Awards, presented by Barbara Marx Hubbard and hosted by Conscious Evolutionaries Chicagoland. It was thrilling, to say the least!
CEC notified me last year that I was to receive the same award for work I did with my local environmental podcast, 219 GreenConnect. As fate would have it, the awards ceremony had to be postponed -- twice! -- which was disappointing at the time, but in retrospect, it was perfect. The delay left me with extra time to let ideas percolate and the award was in part the catalyst for CoThrive's creation. Receiving recognition for one thing made me desire to be a better co-creator and I think CoThrive fills that bill pretty well.
