(closed) Global Climate Action Awards

Deadline: 11 May

Applications are being accepted through to 11 May 2020. Spearheaded by UN Climate Change’s Momentum for Change initiative, the UN Global Climate Action Award shines a light on the most innovative, scalable and replicable examples of what people around the world are doing to tackle climate change.

If you are leading a results-driven project that is successfully addressing climate change, we want to hear from you!

Who can apply?

Organizations, communities, cities, businesses, universities, governments and others that are taking concrete action on climate change can apply to have their projects recognized by the UN Climate Change secretariat (UNFCCC) as a 2020 Lighthouse Activity.

Why should you apply?

Projects selected as a winning activity will receive a wide range of benefits, including fully covered attendance to the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2021; access to policymakers and potential funders during the conference; public recognition by the UN Climate Change secretariat; public relations support and media training; marketing materials, including promotional videos; a dedicated page about the project on the website; and professional photography.
