About Global Recreation Award (GRA)

Global Recreation Award is a North American Recreation Environment Association Award sponsored by HongT8 Security Inc. It was introduced into China by Global Recreation Network in 2019.

Recreation is closely related to everyone's life. As early as 1933, the Athens Charter proposed that recreation is one of the four functions of cities. Since the 1960s, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom have carried out surveys on outdoor recreation resources and studies on recreation planning, and established recreation majors in universities to guide the healthy development of society. Today, with the rapid development of science and technology, the development of productivity and the improvement of production efficiency, people have more and more leisure time. Keynes, a famous American economist, also predicted that for the first time, human beings will face a real permanent problem — how to spend leisure time. Recreation is the most common way to use leisure time.

The Global Recreation Award is a global competition based on the environmental improvement of Recreation. It aims to unite global environmental organizations, environmental-friendly enterprises and independent environmentalists to think together and create a variety of recreation activities, products and better environment to promote healthy life with the wisdom of the contestants.

The Asian regional judging and award ceremony of the competition will be set in China, while other national and regional judging/award ceremony will be set in Canada, which will be adjusted to take into account the impact of COVID-19. The exhibition of works will also be held in the organizer of friendly countries and regions after the award ceremony, and the review of works in China will be carried out jointly by experts from the recreation think tank and foreign experts.

Fair and harsh evaluation
Four indicators of review

Global Recreation Award (GRA) selects and invites experts from all over the world to participate in the review. The experts will combine the letters with the on-site review, but these are conducted anonymously. In order to ensure the fairness of the participants, the organizing committee has developed detailed indicators for the review standards to ensure that the truly valuable works can be distinguished. The indicators are divided into the following four categories.

Originality

It is the doubt and negation of the established reference, the life breath of breaking through the earth after refreshing the inherent classic interface, the experience of being ignored, and the presupposition of new possibilities; the original is a new existence that can pass, stay and develop.It is the prototype of new classics and has the social value of collective consensus.

Practicability

It is to assess whether the work can be manufactured or used, whether the scheme can be implemented, and judge whether it can produce positive effects, and whether it has a positive contribution to the society.

Creativeness

It refers to the behavior that, guided by the existing thinking mode are different from the conventional or ordinary people's thinking, improves or creates new things, methods, elements, paths and environments in a specific environment in line with the idealized needs or to meet the social needs by using the existing knowledge and materials, and can obtain certain beneficial effects.

Uniqueness

It refers to the distinct personality different from other thoughts and forms. It is manifested in variety uniqueness, quality uniqueness, efficacy uniqueness, market uniqueness, cultural uniqueness and other aspects. It is the key to stand out and succeed in many similar works in the market.

The story of Global Recreation Award (GRA)
What's the recreation environment and spirit?

North America is the main focus of leisure and Recreation Research, especially in America, which has experienced nearly a hundred years of academic development. Not only has a large number of scholars, but also has established its own independent education system. In educational practice, America is the first country to carry out recreational education in Colleges and Universities. As early as 1921, the University of Syracuse's New York State Forestry College officially opened a major in recreation.

Up to now, although there are some independent leisure research centers, the comprehensive leisure research institutions have occupied the mainstream in North America. In North America, leisure and recreation have formed a marriage in a sense. There are few independent leisure research institutions in North America, and they are more dependent on recreation.

Starting from the essence of recreation, to improve people's quality of life, promote people's development goals, and establish an education and research system based on human services, health and education.

Global Recreation Award (GRA) has been widely supported and recognized internationally, which depends on its strong sense of responsibility and brand reputation. It is a significant thing.
