Bamboo Pioneers

In 2009, the World Bamboo Organization initiated the Bamboo Pioneers Award. This award is a small attempt to recognize the great achievements of our contemporaries who have dedicated their lives in the pursuit of bamboo knowledge and progress. We know that living creatures all around the world depend on bamboo for their survival. We also know that for centuries, human cultures have cultivated and utilized bamboo for their daily needs and through innovation improved their livelihoods and economies. We are in awe of the myriad of discoveries and innovations of those early pioneers, and have deep appreciation and respect for the traditional cultural utilization and reverence of bamboo.
