Benefits of Global Solutions  Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards

The award seeks to recognize concrete practices and impactful youth-led projects that drive change on the ground, while also serving as examples and inspiration beyond their immediate impact.

2024 Recoupling Award Categories:

  • Reimagine Business Award: Business and commercial activities can drive economic growth, provide employment opportunities, and spark innovation. At the same time, many current business practices lead to excessive waste production, contribute to the depletion of natural resources, exacerbate climate degradation, and perpetuate poor working conditions.  We are looking for businesses and social enterprises that have implemented a business model that fosters social prosperity and environmental goals.
  • Reimagine Social And Climate Action: Many individuals, and disadvantaged groups around the world face significant challenges in accessing basic services like healthcare, food, housing, or education. At the same time environmental crises like climate change, environmental pollution and biodiversity loss are accelerating - threatening our natural environment and exacerbating social imbalances. We are looking for projects that directly support societies impacted by systemic inequities or climate degradation.

  • Reimagine Civic Engagement Award: Around the world, citizens’ trust in government, administration, and public institutions is declining - populism and nationalism are on the rise. At the same time, we are witnessing a lack of transparency and accountability for decision makers and a lack of opportunities for citizens and civil society to engage and participate actively in important decisions that affect their lives. We are looking for projects directly supporting the powershifting towards citizens to engage in the civic space.
