Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards 2023

Apply now for the Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards 2023. Over the last several decades, the world has been witnessing significant economic growth in many parts of the world. At the same time, we are seeing a rise in inequality, an exacerbating climate crisis and a rising sense of disempowerment. This trend can be described as the decoupling of economic prosperity from social prosperity and environmental sustainability.

The Global Solutions Initiative aims to address this trend by generating proposals to better align economic and political activities with environmental sustainability and social prosperity. With the Young Global Changers Recoupling Award they want to honor, and support projects that embody this approach. They want to draw attention to best practices but also learn from them.
