Call for Applications: Young Champions of the Earth

The Young Champions of the Earth Prize aims to celebrate and support individuals aged between 18 and 30 with
outstanding potential to create a positive environmental impact. This prestigious prize is an opportunity for students to earn recognition, training, mentorship, and seed money for their innovative “big idea for the world’s future.”

Ideas must be original and innovative, and should directly address an environmental challenge such as biodiversity loss, climate change, pollution, or water scarcity. Visit the FAQ page for more information and examples.

Each of the seven winners in the 2019 program will receive $15,000 seed money to invest in their projects, invitations and funding to attend high-level UN meetings to share their ideas with the world.

Submissions will be accepted now through March 31, 2019. There is no cost to apply.
