three global goals

 Formerly known as the Positive for Youth Awards, the Global Youth Awards were created in 2012 to provide a platform for inspirational young people delivering positive impact projects to be recognised and rewarded for their efforts. This year we are taking the awards to six countries and providing a virtual hub for any young person to raise awareness of and nominate themselves for an award anywhere in the world.

The award categories are based on our Three Global Goals of Educational Innovation, Empowering Everyone and Environmental Rejuvenation.

We are creating a global hub of inspiring youth talent and amazing, world changing innovations and ideas. This fantastic virtual platform will be launching March 2018 and we want to hear from you if you would like to get involved.

Switzerland - London - Los Angeles - Dubai - Singapore - South Africa


We have created the awards to provide support, experiences, personal development and a global network of opportunities for all of our winners. This includes an invitation to become a RoundTable Global Youth Change Ambassador for 12-months after the awards with access to all of our Ambassadors, Global Goal Projects, Events, Mentoring and Training. We also seek relevant award sponsors to offer local support and experiences where ever possible. Our winners are also invited to support the design and delivery of the awards in the following year.


One of our core philosophies is to collaborate where ever possible. Because of this we are seeking potential partners to work with us to run the awards. We are also seeking inspirational sponsors that can offer our winners opportunities for development and mentoring and youth advisors to select the winners and deliver the events. If you are interested in getting involved in some way please let us know. We are also open to supporting organisations in other countries to run the awards and are creating project packs so that that they can easily be replicated. The Global Youth Awards virtual hub will enable young people from all over the world to be inspired by what is possible and to nominate themselves for the One Global Awards.


Award categories are for Leadership, Innovation and Change. Nominations are open to young people aged 10-25 and we also have a Youth Award Inspiring Mentor for anyone aged 25-29 who is supporting local youth projects in the categories below.

We need to re-imagine the way that young people learn and develop ensuring that this learning is inclusive for everyone. If you are doing anything to innovate or transform education, we want to hear from you.

The Positive for Youth Award is a great initiative recognizing the young change makers of the world working across different fields, I would like to thank the RoundTable Global team for creating a platform which is like a young Nobel Prize of sorts, recognizing efforts of people from a young age. I have heard that you become the average of the five people you surround yourself with, and platforms like these give you access to the most amazing change makers you can learn so much from
