The WIN WIN Youth Award is an international award that aims to empower and reward young people who play an active role in the creation of a more sustainable future.
The WIN WIN Youth Award is a part of the WIN WIN-organization. Since 2000 it has presented one of the world’s leading sustainability awards, the WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award. Previous winners of the WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award include Gro Harlem Brundt-land, Al Gore and Kofi Annan.
Theme of the year 2022 : Sustainable Aquaculture
The UN predicts that global food production must increase by 70% by 2050. To solve the world’s future food supply, they need to look into the possibilities – and challenges – that blue and green foods can provide.
Innovative seafood products and more sustainable animal feed and farming methods are some examples of areas where the jury of WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Youth Award envisions potential award winners of 2022.
The WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Youth Award wants to acknowledge youth aged 13-29, either a person or an organisation, whose aquaculture initiative could contribute to increased efficiency and sustainability, and thereby also toward one or more of the UN:s global goals.
The nominee or nominees will have created change that inspires others and shown what measures are necessary, as well as possible to take.
