Updated blog post with Okular celebration at Akademy 2022

I updated the blog post with Okular celebration at Akademy 2022.

I do not know why the 1 commit from 05 Oct, 2022 is also included, as I believe that had already been taken care of in the last MR from me.

On Wednesday 28 September 2022 [Okular](https://okular.kde.org/), a Free and Open Source advanced document reader that allows you to read, sign, and annotate PDFs, ePubs, MarkDowns, and many other types of documents, was officially celebrated for becoming the first software product to receive the Blue Angel eco-label.
As announced in March (read more [here](https://eco.kde.org/blog/2022-03-16-press-release-okular-blue-angel/)), Okular has been recognized for sustainable software design as reflected in the recent Blue Angel award criteria for software eco-certification. Introduced in 1978, the Blue Angel is the world’s earliest eco-label and the official environmental label awarded by the German government. With this award, Okular is the first and currently only eco-certified computer program within the 30 organizations of the Global Ecolabelling Network, which represents over 50 countries.

EnviroInfo is an international and interdisciplinary conference with a focus on environmental issues in information and communication technologies. Researchers and attendees at the event are, quoting the website, "[c]ombining and shaping national and international activities in the field of applied informatics and environmental informatics in making the world a better place for living." The KDE community is honored to have celebrated Okular's achievement at the event together with the German Environment Agency ('Umweltbundesamt'), the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld ('Umwelt Campus Birkenfeld'), and the larger EnviroInfo community.
Congratulations to Okular and KDE for official recognition of the outstanding work you are doing!
## Update: Celebrating At Akademy 2022 (1 October) {#akademy}
On Saturday 1 October, immediately following the KDE Eco panel discussion, Akademy 2022 attendees gathered to celebrate Okular's achievement in the outdoor gardens at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
It was a beautiful day. Even more beautiful was seeing [Okular contributors](https://invent.kde.org/graphics/okular/-/graphs/master) and the wider KDE community coming together, smiling, and enjoying the delicious, sugar-free KDE Eco cake made especially for the occasion.
See the [toot](https://mastodon.social/web/@BE4FOSS/109093579604779746) about the celebration and follow us at our [BE4FOSS Mastodon](https://mastodon.social/web/@BE4FOSS) account.
