IKON Services has joined the Carlton Football Club in actively participating 16 Days of Activism, a global campaign raising awareness around violence against women. The international initiative runs from Friday 25 November until Saturday 10 December, symbolically beginning on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and finishing on International Human Rights Day. There are fewer issues more pressing than stamping out violence against women and children and as such we share this message with the hope that we can do our bit to influence community values and raise awareness.
The IKON Services Environmental Sustainability Award recognises young people that have demonstrated environmental leadership or a significant contribution to a sustainable Victoria. The award celebrates young people who have demonstrated initiatives in the efficient use of water, resources and energy, better waste management and recycling practices, the enhancement of the environment and effective, practical community action. These young people will stimulate ideas about sustainability and the environment in their community, sharing solutions and identifying strategies for change in the future.
If you know an outstanding young person contributing to innovation or services that reduce environmental impacts and leadership through educational programs, nominate them for the Environment Sustainability Award.
The Carlton Football Club is pleased to announce its spiritual home will now be known as IKON Park.
Carlton captain Marc Murphy and president Mark LoGiudice made the announcement on Monday, to coincide with Michael Jamison and Bryce Gibbs being named as Blues vice-captains.
