The Zayed Sustainability Prize - the prestigious global award based in the United Arab Emirates - is now accepting submissions of projects and solutions that promote sustainable development.

Organisations and schools can enter for the 2020 Prize in one of five categories: Health, Food, Energy, Water and Global High Schools.

The Prize rewards organisations that empower and enhance disadvantaged communities, while also inspiring schools to nurture the next generation of sustainability leaders.

Established in 2008 as the Zayed Future Energy Prize, the Prize broadened its scope last year to address global sustainability priorities and closely align with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since 2008, the Prize’s winners have delivered direct and indirect positive impact to more than 318 million people around the world.

Winners of the Zayed Sustainability Prize 2020 will be announced at the annual awards ceremony held during the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, in January next year.

Entries are made online and close 30 May 2019.
