$3M eco prize open to schools, NGOs and small businesses

Applications for the Zayed Sustainability Prize need to be submitted by 6 July. With a total prize fund of US$3 million, the annual award for high schools, NGOs and small businesses ‘recognises and rewards the achievements of those who are driving impactful, innovative and inspiring sustainability solutions across five distinct categories: Health, Food, Energy, Water and Global High Schools’.

The Global High Schools category is split into six winners: Americas, Europe & Central Asia, Middle East & North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and East Asia & Pacific

“For 14 years, the Prize has proudly recognised and rewarded the achievements driving innovative and inspiring sustainability solutions,” said H.E. Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and Director General of the Zayed Sustainability Prize. “Building on this legacy, we look forward to awarding the next cadre of sustainability pioneers, driving real environmental and social change and generating even greater positive impact on the world.”

“Young people remain integral for the Prize and we are committed to empowering even greater numbers of future sustainability leaders by providing them with platforms to turn their bold ideas into reality through our Global High Schools category.”

The winners will be announced in 2023 during an Awards Ceremony as part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW).

Submissions are open until 6th July 2022 5:00PM EST.
