The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation recently announced a €1 million prize to reward outstanding work in climate change mitigation and adaptation.
The Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity will be awarded annually and will aim to recognise people, groups of people and/or organisations around the work whose work towards tackling the climate emergency stands out for its novelty, innovation and impact.
According to Calouste Gulbenkian, ‘This initiative strives to draw attention to and leverage large-scale climate action responses, helping to speed up the process of decarbonising the global economy, protecting people and natural systems from severe effects associated to climate change and supporting sustainable development.’
The Jury is comprised by a Grand Jury, and an Expert Committee, composed of experts of renowned merit in matters related to mitigation and adaptation to climate change. The Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity is accepting third-party nominations until 24 March 2020
