Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards

Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards

Deadline: 26-Jan-23

The Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards is now open for nominations to bring together these young people from around the world who are working towards a global paradigm shift, combining their talents and together becoming a strong voice for change.

The Young Global Changers (YGC) are individuals with innovative ideas on how to make this world a better place. They must have developed a project or an initiative to turn these ideas into action.

The Global Solutions Initiative aims to address this trend by generating proposals to better align economic and political activities with environmental sustainability and social prosperity. With the Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards they want to recognize and reward projects and initiatives by young people from around the world which embody this recoupling-approach.
