Each winner will receive USD 15,000 in seed funding, customized training, participation in a high-level UN meeting and global publicity.

Global warming is forcing our societies, our economies and our world to change. Our ways of doing business; careers and job opportunities need to change too. 

With this change comes unprecedented opportunity to take action. For brave entrepreneurs and trend-setting role-models to carve their place in a new and greener economy; to pioneer revolutionary technology and radical innovations - to lead a new wave of green careers.
