The Time is Now!

The final call for submissions to the ECO-UNESCO 2023 Young Environmentalist Awards (YEAs) is Tuesday, 28th February 2023. 


The Young Environmentalist Awards are a nationwide programme that recognises and rewards young people aged 10-18 who have taken environmental action in their school or community by generating creative solutions to solve environmental issues. 


Encouraging young people to enter the 2023 YEAs, Elaine Nevin, Director of ECO-UNESCO said, “The Young Environmentalist Awards provide young people with the opportunity to take part in solving the biggest issues facing society today, that of climate change and biodiversity loss. The recent Youth Climate Justice Survey found that an overwhelming percentage of young people (97%) are feeling concerned about climate change.”


Elaine continued, “If we are to combat climate change and reduce biodiversity loss, we need to act now by living more sustainable lives. To do this, we must come up with innovative ideas and provide hope to our future generations. The YEAs allow young people to get involved in the fight against climate change by creating climate-friendly solutions. This proactive approach will instigate positive change in our communities and also help to ease the concerns felt by young people on the issue of climate change.”
