The Cloak of Consciousness is a reminder of our collective responsibility to act for positive change in our world,” said Bertrand Piccard. “This year we can really combine our momentum and show how many voices are committed to using clean energy,” continued André Borschberg.

The Chromy Award is a small replica of the Cloak of Conscience - a five meter high sculpture carved into a single stone block from the renowned Cave Michelangelo. Sculpted by world-renowned artist Anna Chromy, the Cloak of Conscience represents our spiritual and moral achievements in life, particularly those that demonstrate environmental preservation and human rights promotion.

It was fitting that Anna Chromy chose the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, hosted by solar Impulse’s Host Partner Masdar, to present this award; highlighting a shared vision for widespread renewable energy to be used in our daily lives.
