  • Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards (EN/FR/ES/AR) - To apply and learn more, see the following link: Applications due 31 July 2022. These awards aim to showcase real solutions for a more just, equal and healthy planet. Previous initiatives recognized have included women-owned and operated energy cooperatives in Germany, female entrepreneurial “energy shop” initiatives in Mozambique and human rights-based relocation planning in the Carteret Islands. Initiatives will be weighed against criteria aimed to measure contributions to gender equality, resilience and sustainability. Winning projects will ideally work across all of the key result areas, though the organizers note that not all projects will be in a position/stage to meet each and every criteria. Due to existing inequalities and a lack of available resources globally, priority will be given to women-led initiatives, recognizing that programs do not necessarily need to be women-led to be gender just. The three award winners each receive 5,000 EUR in prize money. (Applications in English, French, Spanish, and Arabic)
