  Eco inventions competition launched

Monday 03 March 2008
sunThe UK is one of the world’s leaders in ‘eco-friendly innovations’, it has been revealed as a new competition is launched to inspire youngsters to come up with new green ideas. The UK-IPO (UK Intellectual Property Office) found that Britain - along with Japan, China, USA, Germany and Korea – is leading the way in developing environmental inventions. The UK-IPO’s new ‘Cracking Ideas 2008’ competition is challenging primary school children nationwide to create eco-friendly inventions, in order to encourage green thinking.

The scheme is being backed by the award-winning Aardman Animations, creator of Wallace and Gromit.

“Cracking Ideas is fantastic for encouraging primary school aged children to innovate,” said Baroness Delyth Morgan, Minister for Intellectual Property. “It’s great that this year we are getting children to think about green innovations. The UK is proud of its innovating tradition and our work on energy saving devices.”
