Entries and nominations are now invited for the Young Leaders in Environmental Issues and Climate Change prize, one of 20 prizes on offer in this year’s competition and one of only two in the category of Science Leadership!
Sponsored by the British Council, the Eureka Prize for Young Leaders in Environmental Issues and Climate Change is awarded to a young Australian aged 21 – 30 for scientific or technological leadership in responding to the challenges that threaten our environment and our climate.
The prize is intended to benefit outstanding young people who have demonstrated:
- scientific or technological leadership which aims to improve the environment or reduce the impact of climate change, and
- the potential to accelerate quickly into leadership positions in fields relevant to this prize.
The winner will receive a $10,000 study tour to the United Kingdom, organised by the British Council.
