2009 National Human Settlement Best Practice Gold Medal 

The design of the community centre we are building in Sichuan with the China Children and Teenagers' Fund has won the "2009 National Human Settlement Best Practice Gold Medal". The centre design combines green building principles, renewable energy and resources, and quake-resistant technology. Once completed, it will provide a place for community gatherings, such as after-school activities and vocational skills training, with our people playing an active role.
