Categories of Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards 2024
Reimagine Business Award
Businesses and commercial endeavours have the potential to stimulate economic growth, create jobs, and inspire innovation. However, numerous existing business practices result in unsustainable levels of waste, the depletion of natural resources, worsening climate change, and inadequate labor conditions.
The focus is on identifying businesses and social enterprises that have successfully implemented a business model centered around promoting both social well-being and environmental objectives.
Reimagine Social And Climate Action
Numerous individuals, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, encounter substantial obstacles in accessing essential services such as healthcare, food, housing, and education. Simultaneously, environmental crises like climate change, pollution, and the decline of biodiversity are escalating, posing a threat to our natural surroundings and exacerbating social inequalities.
The focus is on identifying projects that provide direct support to societies affected by systemic inequities or climate degradation.
Reimagine Civic Engagement Award
Globally, there is a decreasing level of trust among citizens towards government, administration, and public institutions. This trend is accompanied by the growing popularity of populism and nationalism. Similarly, there is a noticeable absence of transparency and accountability among decision-makers, as well as limited opportunities for citizens and civil society to actively participate in crucial decisions that impact their lives.
The focus is on identifying projects that actively support the transfer of power to citizens, enabling them to engage meaningfully in the civic space.
