Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards 2024
This year’s awards will have an interesting new twist! The 2024 YGC Recoupling Awards will be held in categories that recognize various approaches to recoupling goals. As a result, the Reimagine Business, Social and Climate Action, and Civic Engagement Awards were launched!
Are you the CEO of a social enterprise that produces and operates in a sustainable manner? Does your company’s efforts directly address social or environmental issues? Perhaps you manage an organization that provides marginalized groups with the tools, resources, or skills they need to live more empowered, healthier, and safer lives. Are you experimenting with methods to make decision-making more participatory and inclusive? Perhaps you are providing opportunities for people to become more involved in their civic area.
