Dear Members,

Warm greetings from WAY Secretariat!

UN Environment is calling on the next generation of environmental leaders and would greatly appreciate if you can share this with your network.

They have partnered with Covestro to launch Young Champions of the Earth. This is a multi-year challenge to help get big ideas off the ground with seed funding, mentoring, training, global publicity and access to influential networks – including trips to the UN Environment Assembly and the UN General Assembly! The challenge aims to identify, celebrate and support individuals between 18 and 30 with outstanding potential to create positive environmental impact. Each year, a total of six Young Champions—one per world region – will receive the full life-changing support package, and 30 will receive expert mentoring.

Do you know of any brilliant young people with big ideas for environmental protection and restoration, a strong track record of instigating change, and a clear vision of a sustainable future? They might just have what it takes to become Young Champions of the Earth! Take a look at this short film to learn more:http://bit.ly/2q2nWIz
