The WIN WIN Youth Award (WWYA) is an international award that aims to empower and reward young people who play an active role in the creation of a more sustainable future. WWYA welcomes contributions from individuals, organisations and movements from all over the world, with members between the ages of 13 to 29.
The WWYA is a part of the WIN WIN Organisation (WWO). Since 2000, the organisation has presented one of the world’s leading sustainability awards, the WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award (WWGSA). Previous winners of the WWGSA include Gro Harlem Brundtland, Al Gore and Kofi Annan.
The issue of biodiversity is complex and has a bearing on a very wide range of conditions for life on earth, everything from clean water, raw materials and food production to genetic variation, inspiration for technical solutions and cures for diseases. The multifaceted and intractable nature of the significance of biodiversity must not contribute to an inability to act. Solutions and initiatives in many areas are needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) number 14 and 15, which address ecosystems in the oceans and on land.
- The winner of the WWYA will receive SEK 20,000 at the award ceremony on 22 October in Gothenburg, Sweden
- Applicants should present a recent or ongoing project/work/initiative linked to the theme for 2020, ’Biodiversity’
