The Champions of the Earth award recognizes individuals, groups, and organizations whose actions have a significant environmental impact.
This year, UNEP is looking for nominations of individuals, organizations, and governments working on long-term solutions to plastic pollution.

Every year, individuals, groups and organisations who have made outstanding contributions to the protection and restoration of the environment are recognized in four categories:

POLICY LEADERSHIP AWARD

This award acknowledges individuals or groups in public service whose activities and leadership have resulted in fundamental, beneficial environmental change in their country or internationally.

INSPIRATION AND ACTION AWARD

This award acknowledges individuals or groups that have taken courageous environmental action in advocating and bringing about significant positive change on behalf of the Earth and its inhabitants. Their example and leadership inspire and motivate others.

A global jury selects the Champions of the Environment laureates after a public nomination procedure. The large number of nominations indicates how a growing number of individuals realize what is possible and appreciate the benefits of protecting and restoring nature.

The solutions are here and people and organisations from all over the world are stepping forward to implement them. The Champions of the Earth face down adversity and affirm that humanity has the ingenuity and the ambition to protect and restore our environment. The Champions are chosen for their transformative impact on the environment and their leadership in urging bold and decisive action on behalf of the planet and its inhabitants.

ENTREPRENEURIAL VISION AWARD

This award category recognizes individuals or organizations that challenge the status quo. The laureates in this field demonstrate how environmental sustainability is compatible with financial profitability.
