Formerly the Positive for Youth Awards, the Global Youth Awards will be delivered in four regional hubs in 2018 and also provide an exciting online platform for outstanding and inspiring young people to nominate their Global Goal Projects for sponsorship and awards. Insights from this years awards and more details on how to get involved can be found below.



The Global Youth Awards are run by young people for young people and are our way of recognising and rewarding outstanding youth contribution to our Three Global Goals of Educational Innovation, Empowering Everyone and Environmental Rejuvenation. In it’s sixth year, the awards seek nominations for outstanding young people who are inspiring others in their local communities through individual contribution and projects for change. The awards offer exciting opportunities for winners to be mentored and developed by some of the most inspirational people from across all industries.

Regional awards will be run in London, Los Angeles, Dubai, Switzerland and Singapore culminating in a virtual One Global Youth Awards which means that any young person can be nominated regardless of location.
