Description

The World Association of Non-Governmental Organizations (WANGO) is an international organization uniting NGOs worldwide in the cause of advancing peace and global well-being. WANGO helps to provide the mechanism and support needed for NGOs to connect, partner, share, inspire, and multiply their contributions to solve humanity’s basic problems. WANGO awards recognize non-governmental organizations from throughout the world that demonstrate exceptional effort, service, innovation, and excellence.

The recipient of WANGO's 2013 Environment Award was World Information Transfer (WIT). Dr. Christine K. Durbak, Founder and Chair of WIT, received the award from WANGO Secretary General Taj Hamad on December 2nd at the 22nd International Conference on Health and Environment: Global Partners for Global Solutions, held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.

WIT is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization in General Consultative Status with the United Nations, promoting environmental health and literacy. In 1987, inspired by the Chornobyl nuclear tragedy, WIT was formed in recognition of the pressing need to provide accurate actionable information about our deteriorating global environment and its effect on human health.
