A person or organisation central to a community’s engagement with climate action.
Global action often begins at home. This award recognises the sometimes unsung heroes of change at the local level. Climate change represents such a big challenge that it requires leadership at all levels, ranging from globetrotting politicians to grassroots actors of change. We want to capture the bold moves taken now by community members who are opening new avenues of emissions reduction or making their societies more climate resilience. Effective climate solutions need to be based on local knowledge. Show us how to mobilise locally and act globally.
