The Champions of the Earth Award recognizes outstanding visionaries and leaders in the fields of policy, science, entrepreneurship, and civil society action. The Award, which is organised by the United Nations Environment Programme, seeks to distinguish men and women whose actions and leadership have made a positive impact on the environment.
You want to change the world. We’re here to help. Young Champions of the Earth aims to celebrate and support individuals between the ages of 18 and 30 who have outstanding potential to create positive environmental impact.
Each year, six young people – one from each global region – will be named Young Champions of the Earth. These winners receive seed funding, intensive training, and tailored mentorship to help bring their big environmental ideas to life.
