For those interested in environmental and ecological matters its worth taking a look and perhaps casting a vote. www.prix-pinocchio.org

Have a nice day all.

TOPIC STARTER
Voting is Underway Oct 18, 2012

This year's voting is now underway. Apparently les Amis had a few technical hitches with the web site so it was delayed until this morning.

Do have a look, and please vote if the subjects interest you.

The site is in French and English.
