The Children's Climate Prize jury meets October 4th
Nominations for the Children's Climate Prize 2018 closed on Sunday. Contributions have been submitted via a form on the climate prize website since April. It is now time for this year's jury to meet and select five finalists. Which five will be revealed on November 1st.
The prize was initiated by Telge Energi, a company exclusively working with renewable energy sources and an independent jury has been appointed to go through all contributions and select five finalists and, of course, the winner. The prize was initiated in 2016 and chairman of the jury, climate profile Johan Kuylenstierna, has been wielding the gavel since the start. As of this year there is also a jury representative from Telge Energi's staff.
The award ceremony will be held in Stockholm City Hall and the jury meeting will take place at the same venue. This year’s finalists will be revealed November 1st and the winner will be announced during the week leading up to the award ceremony.
TV-personality Doreen Månsson is participating in the jury's work for the first time and looks forward to the upcoming jury meeting.
“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”, says Månsson.
