On 28 January 2009, the opening day of the World Economic Forum (WEF) the Bern Declaration and Greenperace Switzerland present their "Public Eye Awards 2009". What the organisations demand is that companies everywhere in the world accept their social and environmental responsibility. Public Eye Awards Presentation 2009: winners will be presented in the four categories Global, Swiss, Positive, and People's Award.

So this year, a new "Positive Award" honors a particularly courageous employee and colleague. The audience is encouraged to take part to the award, which takes place on www.publiceye.ch until 27 January 2009.

And the winner is...

Former German government minister Heiner Geissler and Susanne Leutenegger, social-democratic member of the Swiss parliament, will be the keynote speakers on the subject of corporate responsibility.
