Grants become available throughout the year from many different avenues. Those listed here are relevant to sustainability and educational institutions. Local council grants become available periodically and they will similarly be listed below.
Evolving from 10 years of success as the Zayed Future Energy Prize, the UAE’s preeminent sustainability Prize undergoes a strategic refocus to become the Zayed Sustainability Prize. Broadening its reach beyond renewable energy, the prize is aiming to reward projects and innovative solutions from a wider spectrum of sustainability and human development initiatives. Based on its renewed mission, the Prize now has five distinct categories: Health, Food, Energy, Water and Global High Schools.
The Global High School Prize aims to inspire today’s youth to be forward-thinkers and cultivate within them a vested interest in becoming agents of change for sustainable development – after all, youth of today are leaders of tomorrow. This prize will be awarded to global high schools from six geographic regions that can demonstrate impact, innovation and inspiration to enable inclusive and equitable access to quality education. Schools must propose projects that can be implemented within 12-24 months with tangible outcomes in the areas of sustainable energy, water, food and health.
If you believe you have a project that could win the Zayed Sustainability Prize, we want to know about it!
Winners of the Zayed Sustainability Prize will be announced at the awards ceremony during the opening of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, on 14th January 2019.
Online submissions will close on 9th August 2018.
