Launched in 2008, Zayed Sustainability Prize is a pioneering global award in sustainability by the United Arab Emirates. The Prize is now open for submissions towards its 13th edition. Last year, they received 2,373 entries from 129 countries. So far, 86 winners have transformed 335 million lives with their ideas and innovations.
Inviting global organisations and high schools, the prize recognises innovative solutions in sustainable and humanitarian development in five sectors, namely – Health, Food, Energy, Water and Global High Standards. The prizes are also for each of these categories and the winners of each category will receive US$600,000 to further implement their sustainability solutions to transform lives around the world.
Apart from ideas and innovations on sustainability, they are also inviting nominations from candidates who have undertaken the shared responsibility of working together, exceptionally well. Through their #FindThePioneer campaign, they wish to recognise pioneers who are changing lives in any of these five categories. Nominations can be sent to them on email at email@example.com or by simply tagging the school or organisation on social media, using the hashtag #FindThePioneer.
