Since 2006, the ethecon Foundation for Ethics & Economy has annually awarded two international prizes - the International ethecon Blue Planet Award and the International ethecon Black Planet Award.
With the Blue Planet Award, ethecon honours individuals who have shown outstanding commitment to the conservation and preservation of our Blue Planet.
With the International ethecon Black Planet Award, ethecon exposes and condemns individuals who have contributed to the destruction and downfall of our Blue Planet in an outrageous way.
The trustees and board of ethecon explain:
Regardless of his own safety, Tomo Kri×nar defends , human life and opposes environmental destruction, exploitation and war. He not only defends peace and human rights, but also the self-determination of peoples. He acts for the benefit of the human community and the environment. He holds morals and ethics high and stands up to the demise of the Black Planet.
In a world that increasingly seeks profit as the sole criterion of any decision and development, ethecon sees the actions of Tomo Kri×nar as an outstanding contribution towards the rescue and preservation of our Blue Planet. For this exemplary support and development of human values, ethecon - Foundation Ethics & Economy honours Tomo Kri×nar with the International ethecon Blue Planet Award 2014.
