Summary

Over the last decade, WAFA has honored community-based "silent heroes" throughout the world for their low-cost sustainability solutions. Expanding its mission, WAFA has launched the Youth Climate Award in February 2020 to support young "climate warriors" who are working for community-based sustainable development. These under 25 sustainability enthusiasts are the committed future good citizens, who need to be supported, exposed and nurtured.

Challenge

This challenging time requires a global commitment to work together to reduce carbon emissions to net-zero by 2050. Pushing back against their elders' denial, young people are stepping up to demand concrete action now to preserve our planetary home.

Solution

WAFA is strengthening its commitment to support climate change initiatives. The 2020 WAFA Youth Climate Award focusses on youth under 25 from the global South who are working for sustainable development that reduces excessive use of fossil fuels. The Award targets projects that can be shared and replicated easily across the planet. WAFA will promote winning projects to attract potential investors to scale them up worldwide.

Long-Term Impact

Due to the unprecedented exposure to the projects, the projects that could not take off in scarcity of resources will get a chance to scale and replicate. These sustainable solutions will help combat climate change that could otherwise adversely affect human life. This exposure will create awareness about the sustainable measure which can be adopted by those who are in great need. Eventually, WAFA award winners and aspirants will also follow it to their benefit, and this will help in spreading
