Zayed Sustainability Prize 2021 – Entries Open
The UAE Government presents the annual Zayed Sustainability Prize to startups and entrepreneurs who have contributed to the sustainability initiatives.
This year, while presenting awards for the 2020 prize, the UAE Government invited entrepreneurs and start-ups to submit their proposals for the next round of the Zayed Sustainability Prize. Intending applicants may formally submit their entries through the online portal until May 21.
The main criterion is that the applicants should offer long-term solutions and demonstrate their intent of improving access to essential products or services across five main categories: health, food, energy, water and global high schools.
The expert jury will then screen all entries for overall impact, innovation, and inspiration. The annual award is expected to foster social initiatives that adopt new technologies and aim to change the future. Naturally, such initiatives also receive direct funding.
Now entering its 13th year, the prize has rewarded 86 winners whose solutions or school projects have directly and indirectly affected 335 million people around the world.
