One month left to nominate for the Children’s Climate Prize 2021
Between March 10 and June 4, young people around the world who are fighting for the environment and climate can be nominated or nominate themselves for the Children's Climate Prize. This is a reminder that there is now only one month left until this year’s nomination period closes.
Young innovators, entrepreneurs, changemakers, and conservators who have in various ways taken the initiative to find sustainable solutions for the environment and climate are eligible to win the international Children's Climate Prize. Last year, a record number of entries were received from 24 different countries, and hopefully there will be at least the same amount of interest this year.
A prize of SEK 100,000 will be awarded to the winner to enable them to continue to develop their project. The award is aimed at young people aged 12-17 and individuals, groups and organizations can nominate themselves or be nominated by someone else.
There is now one month left until this year’s nomination period closes on June 4. The jury will then have the difficult task of selecting finalists and winners from among this year's entries. Who they are will be presented in the autumn of 2021. It is the Children’s Climate Foundation that awards the prize each year.
The Children’s Climate Prize is an international prize annually awarded to young people who have made extraordinary efforts for the climate and environment. The winners of the prize are celebrated at an award ceremony in November in Stockholm, Sweden. They receive a diploma, medal and prize money of SEK 100,000 to continue developing their projects. The prize was founded in 2016 by Telge Energi, the Swedish frontrunner in renewable energy.
