The Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change together with the Festival for the Earth are inviting individuals, teams and organizations with innovative projects and actionable ideas solving targeted climate change challenges, to submit entries for the Best Climate Solutions 2018 Award. The 2018 Award is seeking solutions addressing the challenge of “Communicating Climate Change Threats and Opportunities”.
The Best Climate Solutions 2018 Award aims to showcase and promote the most creative and impactful initiatives designed to deliver engaging messages, raise awareness and trigger action in the audiences addressed, such as students, consumers, business or politicians.
The finalists and the winner of the Best Climate Solutions 2018 Award will be announced on 4 December 2018, at the Festival for the Earth 2018 in Venice, Italy.
The author of the winning project will be invited to present the proposal during a high-level event featuring Nobel, Pulitzer, and Goldman Prize winners, and will receive a cash prize of €3000.
Entrants can be individuals, teams or organizations, regardless of nationality. They can submit their idea or project, as well as a third party’s idea or project with due reference to the author(s). Where an intellectual property owner’s authorization is needed, it is the responsibility of the applicants to obtain such approval before submitting the final materials.
Eligible submissions are innovative projects, initiatives, tools, or ideas to communicate climate change in education, advocacy, media production and social engagement activities.
Applicants can present either a brand new idea or an already existing project that is in its preliminary phase, or which is underway or one that is already concluded. These must be actionable ideas or concrete projects.
All submissions must be in English.
Entries will be judged according to their viability; degree of innovation (at technological, social, or organizational level); expected/observed impact; and scalability.
Applications are to be done online by 28 June 2018.
