Young Champions of the Earth is a forward-looking initiative designed to breathe life into the ambitions of brilliant young environmentalists. In this inaugural year, six young people – one from each global region – have been selected to receive mentorship, specialized training, and $15,000 in seed funding to bring their big ideas to life. UN Environment has partnered with Covestro, a world-leading supplier of high-tech polymer materials, to develop and run the initiative. In addition to seed funding for each Young Champion, the winners are put through an incubator training programme and are offered mentorship by Covestro staff.
