The UN Young Champions of the Earth initiative is searching for seven young innovators with big and bold solutions for our planet. This year the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) backed campaign will select seven people from every corner of the planet to be one of the #YoungChamps.
Winners will receive seed funding to bring their big environmental ideas to life.
And the call for applications is now open, with a 10 April deadline to apply for a chance of securing a range of game changing support, including mentorship. “We’re looking for the artists, scientists, economists, communicators and entrepreneurs aged 18 to 30, with big, bold ideas — for our planet, for humanity, for a greener future,” the UNEP website states.
