Zayed Sustainability Prize Submissions for 2021 Edition
Zayed Sustainability Prize

Following the recent celebration of the 10 winners of the 2020 awards during the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, the Zayed Sustainability Prize has officially announced that its submissions process for the 2021 edition is now open.

Accepting entries until May 21st, 2020, via its online portal, the UAE’s pioneering global award for rewarding impact, innovation, and inspiration – across five sustainability categories – saw a record-breaking number of submissions last year, with 2,373 entries received from 129 countries.

The Prize’s US$3 million annual fund rewards winners US$600,000 in each category; the Global High Schools category is split into six world region winners, with each school able to claim up to US$100,000 to start or augment their project in their local communities. The Global High Schools category was introduced to the Prize in 2012, in recognition that to empower and enhance communities of the future, the next generation of sustainability leaders need to be engaged at the school level – today.
