Win Win Gothenburg Sustainability Youth Award 2021 (Fully Funded)

Win Win Gothenburg Sustainability Youth Award 2021 (Fully Funded)



Are you a young (13-29 years old) anti-corruption hero? Then you should apply for the Win Win Award.

The WIN WIN Youth Award is an international award that targets to endow and reward young people who play an active role in the creation of a more sustainable future. Contributions from individuals, organizations, and movements from all over the world, with members between the ages of 13 to 29 are welcome.

WIN WIN Youth Network is a national platform that invites youths to meet other young change-makers that share the same goal to make the world a better place to live. Members of the network are people between 13-29 years old, engaged in organizations in Sweden that tackle sustainability issues – either environmental, social, economic, or all of them. The objective of the network is to improve communication and dialogue between different sustainability organizations in order to find collaboration effects and achieve greater impact through the activities they do.

Applicants to the WIN WIN Youth Award should present a past or ongoing project/work/initiative linked to the theme 2021: ANTI-CORRUPTION. Around the world, corruption is one of the biggest obstacles to sustainable development. Corruption increases poverty, undermines democracy, and complicates efforts to achieve the UN’s 17 Global Goals. The program points of the arena should therefore be connected to corruption, power, transparency, resource allocation, rights, equality, and other related subjects.
