OdeOde magazine, known as the “international magazine for intelligent optimists” has received an award from the Earth Society Foundation, which encourages peaceful care of the Earth.

The magazine, based in San Francisco and Rotterdam, covers global politics, clean tech, spirituality and solutions to world problems.

Ode co-founder Hélène de Puy accepted the award at a celebration at the United Nations in New York last weekend, telling audience members to focus on positive developments.

“Ode is humbled by this award and would like to thank The Earth Society Foundation for this honor. We encourage everyone to join us in our efforts to nurture, conserve, and care for the natural resources and life of Earth,” the magazine’s editors said in a statement.

The Earth Society Foundation was started by John McConnell and Margaret Mead in 1970, the same year that Earth Day began. It has honored people and programs around the world, from UN Secretary-General U Thant to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
