A PIONEERING INITIATIVE FOR SCHOOLS & YOUTH
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 impactful projects that really make a difference to be recognised and rewarded for their efforts.
The award categories are based on our Three Global Goals of Educational Innovation, Empowering Everyone and Environmental Rejuvenation.
To create the largest global collaboration for youth empowerment and development the world has ever seen.
The Three Global Goal Youth Projects & Awards supports and showcases extraordinary young people aged 11-17 around the world who are leading inspirational projects for a positive impact. Our online global talent bank offers opportunities for creation, collaboration and celebration between young people and forward-thinking organisations.
Through our 2019 Projects & Awards We are creating a global hub of inspiring youth talent and amazing, world changing innovations and ideas! if you are involved in a project or initiative that is helping change the world we want to hear from you.
The Global Youth Awards are truly unique in that they have been co-created and are run by young people for young people.

THREE GLOBAL GOAL PROJECTS & AWARDS
Are your students ambassadors for change? The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a priority for everyone if we are to go ‘beyond sustainability’ and reverse the impact we are having on our planet. The Global Youth Awards have been supporting young people to do just that since 2012.
The belief that age is a limiting factor in creating global change has been proven time and again to not be true. This is why we have sought out and rewarded youth pioneers for creating change in our Three Global Goals of Educational Innovation, Empowering Everyone and Environmental Rejuvenation. We believe these encompass all of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and are an easier and inclusive way of capturing the imagination and therefore the creative passion of youth wanting to get involved.
Having sought out inspiring youth doing incredible things we have come to realise that every young person has the ability to create change in the world when they have passion and purpose. We believe in YOUTH.
We would like to invite your school or organisation to participate in the biggest ever Global Youth Awards call to action with a Project For Change. The projects can run along any theme as long as they are in line with the RoundTable Global Three Global Goals.
WHY GET INVOLVED?
We all want to shine a light on the amazing things that young people are doing to make a difference. Bringing the Three Global Goals into your school or organisation provides an opportunity to do that with external support, global connectivity and access to materials, resources and examples that make this as effortless as possible for you.
Every project registered will automatically be nominated for one of our Global Youth Awards which are free to enter and can be individual, delivered by groups or as an entire school project. Enabling your young people to share their ideas and innovations to inspire other people around the world.
The Three Global Goal Projects and Awards have been created to provide opportunities for young people aged 11-17 to tap into creativity, imagination and play while delivering something that gives them a sense of pride and empowers them to make a difference in their local community.
They enable young people to step courageously into leadership action and to become inspiring role models for change. The Global Goal Projects can be delivered in alignment with the current curriculum or as extra curricular projects.
EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES FOR AWARD WINNERS
We have created the awards to provide support, experiences, personal development and a global network of opportunities for all of our winners.
