What makes a Champion of the Earth?

We are looking to celebrate leaders and visionaries across all walks of life. We are searching for inspirational examples of the power of green initiatives to address environmental crises, and those that create and implement powerful solutions that set the stage for a sustainable Green Economy for the 21st century.

We seek to recognize living proof that amid today’s environmental and economic crises lay unprecedented opportunities for innovative solutions, fresh approaches and dynamic leadership – from policy action to grassroots initiatives.

UNEP will select a laureate for each of the following four categories:

  • Policy Leadership
  • Science & Innovation
  • Entrepreneurial Vision
  • Inspiration & Action
