For the second year running, materials manufacturer Covestro and UN Environment are calling on young innovators across the globe to submit their creative solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental challenges.
Representing every global region, seven applicants with the most promising solutions will be recognized as Young Champions of the Earth. Each winner will receive $15,000 in seed funding, customized training, participation in a high-level U.N. meeting and global publicity.
In parallel, up to 50 applicants will be granted privileged access to an online mentoring program. A community of experts drawn from 16,000 Covestro employees will become mentors dedicated to strengthening the viability and impact of the mentees’ ideas.
By providing such technical and financial support, Covestro and UN Environment will help young people scale up their big ideas into real workable solutions for environmental problems and, in doing so, inspire others to take action.
