The 5th edition of the Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity is now open to nominations in recognition of individuals and organisations leading society’s efforts to tackle the single biggest challenge facing humanity today: climate change.
Applauding outstanding contributions to climate action and climate solutions that inspire hope and possibility, the Prize has, since inception, awarded €4 million to different approaches to tackling climate change. The winnings have been used to support people facing the worst impacts of climate change – including funding female-led mangrove restoration projects in Cameroon, supporting grassroots organisations in Brazil, and helping flood victims in India and Bangladesh.
Both the Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity jury (chaired by former German Chancellor, Angela Merkel) and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation seek nominations that demonstrate:
- Evidence of transformative solutions and the potential for long-term change
- Clear, scalable solutions with real impact and proven environmental and social benefits
- Work that inspires and demonstrates active leadership
- Ideas that meet today’s needs and anticipate tomorrow’s challenges
