European Award

Friday, 11 January 2013

Agri Aware, the Irish agri-food educational body were recently awarded the European Commission’s ‘CAP50 Common Agricultural Policy Communication Award’ for Family Farm, developed by Agri Aware and Dublin Zoo.

Family Farm in Dublin Zoo is an active and fun learning space for young and old and a great addition and attraction to families and visitors. Opened in 2010 by Agri Aware and Dublin Zoo, Family Farm replaced Dublin Zoo’s former ‘Pets’ corner’.

The top EU communications award was presented to Agri Aware in Brussels in December, by the European Commissioner for Agriculture, Dacian CioloĊŸ, to recognise best practice in communicating the CAP to the public via Family Farm, developed by Agri Aware and Dublin Zoo. Agri Aware’s submission on Family Farm was shortlisted from some 118 entries from 21 countries across Europe.
