Champions of the Earth and Young Champions Awards

The Champions of the Earth award is the UN’s highest, annual accolade recognizing individuals and organizations whose actions have had a transformative impact on the environment. The associated Young Champions of the Earth initiative, in turn, is a forward-looking prize designed to breathe life into the ambitions of brilliant young environmentalists, aged 18-30, with bold, innovative ideas to address some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges.

This year’s laureate and winner announcements began on 16 September and will continue through to the award ceremony that will take place on 26 September in New York.
