We are at a turning point when it comes to our history and the state of the Earth. Climate change is real, it is happening right know and we know what we need to do about it. Only future generations will know whether or not we succeeded.
Young people around the world dare to think differently and see opportunities where others see difficulties. Their young minds and groundbreaking solutions can be the spark that ignites the fire that challenges and inspires us all. They allow us to re-evaluate the way we look at our planet.
Children’s Climate Prize supports their actions to bring sustainable solutions for the environment and the climate. We celebrate and shed light on young innovators, entrepreneurs, changemakers and conservators in order to spread hope and inspire others.
