Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards
With the “Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards” the Global Solutions Initiative aims to identify and recognize young changemakers from all over the world who contribute actively towards a better alignment – a “recoupling” – of economic prosperity with environmental sustainability and the needs and demands of societies, communities and individuals. The award seeks to recognize concrete practices and impactful youth-led projects that drive change on the ground, while also serving as examples and inspiration beyond their immediate impact.
To be successful, projects must be guided by a people-centric approach, that puts the needs and voices of their stakeholders, customers, workers or communities at the center. Projects must be beyond the idea phase and can include social businesses as well as nonprofit activities. The finalists present their projects at the Global Solutions Summit in Berlin.
