2011: The Education for Sustainable Development Award of the German UNESCO Commission
This institutional award was presented to the Collegium on the 19th of September 2011. The KMGNE, it was stated, showed impressively how future-appropriate education can look like. “The jury, with its vote, recognized the Collegium’s ability to convey in an understandable manner how people can act sustainably,” said Prof. Gerhard de Haan, Chair of the National Committee and of the jury for the UN Decade in Germany.
2010: The 2010 Future Prize: Gardens of the Metropolises of the Academy for Sustainable Development of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
On December 2, 2010, the music video KlimaClown received an acknowledgment prize. The laudation stated “Everything that is today being designed, planned and decided will be accompanying those who are now young for the longest time. If the development does not proceed sustainably, if it is based upon a waste of resources and upon pollution of the environment, they are the ones who will have to live with its consequences the longest. What seems more logical then, than to develop these texts and images together with these young people? One outstanding example is the video KlimaClown.”
2010: The 2010 Talents and Ideas Day in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
In Schwerin on November 25th, the project COOL – Change of our Life was awarded a prize at the 4th Talents and Ideas Day, 2010, by Henry Tesch, State Minister of Education, Science and Culture of the State of Mecklenburg- Vorpommern.

The Jury stated: “With plenty of sarcasm and satirical jabs, and rapidly switching camera positions, the clip Die Anderen (The others) demonstrates our daily waste of energy in a household scene, and places the responsibility on all of us. A complex topic which the jury feels has been addressed in less than one minute with admirable competence and technical skill.”
