    About the prize

    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.
