Applications for the 2019 UN Global Climate Action Awards now open
The United Nations Climate Change’s Momentum for Change initiative encourages organizations, cities, industries, universities, governments, and others taking bold leadership on climate change to apply for the UN Global Climate Action Award.
The award recognizes the most innovative and replicable examples of what people around the globe are doing to address climate change, in the hope of inspiring others to act. The selected activities will be recognized and celebrated at the UN Climate Conference (COP 25) in Chile.

- Planetary Health: recognizing novel solutions that balance the need for both human health and a healthy planet.
- Climate Neutral Now: recognizing efforts by individuals, companies and governments that are achieving real results in transitioning to climate neutrality.
- Women for Results: recognizing the critical leadership and participation of women in addressing climate change.
- Financing for Climate Friendly Investment: recognizing successful financial innovations for adaptation and climate mitigation.
