The end of 2014 has been jam-packed in terms of lead-related promotional and awareness events. First up, as a part of the WHO Lead Poisoning Week of Action (see list of media coverage around the world, below): VAP Ceremony, Elizabeth handed out 29 prizes to the winners of VAP 2014 at Hampden Park Public School. You can read our report of this event at: (http://www.leadsafeworld.com/events/hampden-park-public-school-mention/) and Hampden Park Public School's mention of this event at: (http://j.mp/HPPSPresentation).

Next was EcoXpo which happened on the 28th, 29th and the 30th of November. The event was held at Prince Alfred Park, right next to Central station. We set up on the 28th of November and made it look green and presentable for our visitors. Saturday was when the event was in full swing, our guessing competition was as popular as usual and we had some interesting conversations with people and provided advice on lead testing and removal solutions. We sold some calendars and even received a generous donation on Sunday. All in all, it was an enjoyable and beneficial experience for all involved and we look forward to the 2015 edition of EcoXpo, a very green festival with a lot of excellent causes.

The Lead Safe World website will continue to promote lead safety actions that everyone can take, anywhere in the world, rather than being a broad-ranging archive of information about the history of lead, the health effects of lead, sources of lead contamination, etc., as our existing web site is (www.lead.org.au). Additionally, under Solutions , there's a Blood Lead Challenge flyer that I encourage all our readers and supporters to participate in. This is a part of our major project in 2015 that involves collating data and creating a searchable database of blood lead information. We'd like to thank you in advance if you decide to be a part of this project!

We have continued to add to the Partners section (http://www.leadsafeworld.com/partners/) and this section informs visitors of our Lead Safe World website and companies and when visiting the website about products and organisations which help manage lead poisoning and lead contamination. These organisations and products will be easily-identified by the Logos: ‘Lead Free’, ‘Lead Safe’ and ‘Lead Away.’

Having said this, we would like to extend our invitation to all partnerships and companies with proven solutions to lead problems, lead-free products and lead-safe services, to join us.

A new year means a new Volcano Art Prize (VAP), so get your entries in now at: (www.volcanoartprize.com)! Remember, we're accepting short films this year and we already have a short film entry! Entries close Monday 27th July 2015.
