Telge Energi awarded the first Children's Climate Prize to the inspiring climate warrior Xiuhtezcatl Martinez 16 years from USA. Now it's time to find the 2017 climate hero. The winner, appointed by a jury, is awarded a medal, a diploma and a prize fund of SEK 50,000 at the prize ceremony in Södertälje, Sweden on November 22nd.
We face a turning point in human history and the state of the earth. We must stop and reverse climate change that drives us against catastrophic scenarios. Telge Energi has taken a stand by working exclusively with renewable energy. But more needs to be done. The next generation will face the consequences for our climate failure. Telge Energi therefore instituted the Children's Climate Prize, an international climate prize awarded to a child or youth, 10-17 years, who has done something extraordinary for the climate and environment. The prize was established in 2016 to highlight another perspective on the climate issue, recognizing that it is the children's future at stake, that their voices are important and deserve to be heard. The finalists and the winner are appointed by a jury and receive SEK 50 000 in prize money. Anyone can nominate their climate hero.
To draw attention to the climate issue from a more positive perspective, Telge Energi established the Children's Climate Prize in 2016. Last year's prize was awarded to the inspiring climate warrior Xiuhtezcatl Martinez from Colorado, United States. Xiuhtezcatl is a 16-year-old climate activist, hip-hop artist and an extraordinarily powerful voice in the climate debate worldwide. He has made his voice heard on some of the world's greatest venues including being the main speaker at the UN General Assembly in New York. He is the director of the Earth Guardians, a global organization of young activists, artists and musicians from around the world working together to create positive change.
