It’s incredibly inspiring to see the large number of climate-committed young people, from all over the world, come up with solutions and inspire through their ability to move from idea to action. Shreya, Nav and Vihaan are great sources of inspiration for all of us, and we look forward to seeing their projects grow. It was difficult to select the winners from the many qualified entries this year
“It feels both important and exciting to lead this jury for another year and we are all proud to be entrusted to select the finalists and winner of the Children’s Climate Prize 2019. The young people of the world are really driving the issue of transitioning to a fossil fuel-free and more sustainable future. We should all be grateful to be followed by a generation of such passionate people, smart innovators, and strong voices. Being able to offer them a platform like this has never felt more important,”
It will be incredibly exciting to delve into all the amazing contributions that have been sent in. Seeing so many good and painstaking initiatives from the world's youth, that in various ways contribute to positive change, makes me full of hope
The beauty of the Children’s Climate Prize is that it allows the generation most affected by the negative consequences of climate change, to be part of the solution. Thus, hopefully, increasing today’s decision makers willingness to take action
The Children's Climate Prize is an opportunity for young people who are active in climate mitigation efforts to inspire one another, as well as other young people around the world, especially in this time when our fragile home needs more attention than ever
Edgar's innovations are brilliant and good example on how to combine climate responsibility while at the same time contributing to a positive development, for his own part as for society at large
It is easy to feel despair when following the news these days, but looking at these young heroes from around the world, ready to take lead for transition, you find both hope and inspiration!
We are so happy and genuinely proud to see Xiuhtezcatl in Södertälje again for this occasion
I'm not trying to get more followers, I try to inspire more young leaders, get more people to use their voice and their passion so that we can all work together to improve the world.
We initiated the Children's Climate Prize to highlight the climate crisis in a more hopeful and positive context, and this year's winner, Xiuhtezcatl, does just that. A true role model and inspiration to all of us, children and adults.
When dealing with environmental and climate research, it is important to always consider different perspectives. It is important to pay attention to children's and young people's efforts in environmental issues. That’s why I am looking forward to the task of leading the work of the jury in the hunt for the next big climate hero.
There is no Nobel Prize for the Environment and Climate Research and that is remarkable and therefore we want the Children's Climate Prize to engage and inspire the next generation to greatness.
