Clewat´s CCO Marko Kärkkäinen has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
Fellows past and present include Sir David Attenborough, Dame Judi Dench, Charles Dickens, Stephen Hawking, Baroness Helena Kennedy, Nelson Mandela, Karl Marx and Adam Smith.
“I am absolutely delighted to have been awarded this Fellowship. It means a great deal to have received recognition of this kind and to be part of a community of change makers. I look forward to continuing my fight against marine pollution as part of the Royal Society of Arts”, commented Marko.
Founded in 1754, the Royal Society of Arts, also known as the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, aims to enrich society through ideas and action. Fellowship of the RSA (FRSA) is an award granted to individuals that the RSA judges to have made outstanding achievements to social progress and development. Fellowship also gives access to the fabulous facilities at RSA House in central London and to a plethora of events organised by both the RSA and fellow members.
Clewat congratulates Marko for his achievement and hopes that sea cleaning will get more visibility with this!
