FOUNDER OF THE ELEVATE PRIZE FOUNDATION
This month’s theme is Climate Justice.
We’re championing organizations finding solutions to the climate crisis that are ALSO committed to creating a fairer and more just society in the process.
The climate crisis is the number one emergency of our time. Climate Justice puts climate change in a social, economic and political context – not just an environmental one. As the activist Disha Ravi puts it; “Climate justice is about intersectional equity. It is about being radically inclusive of all groups of people, so that everyone has access to clean air, food and water.”
We’re looking for organizations taking a thoughtful and inclusive approach to one of the biggest challenges facing our planet – and we need YOUR help to find them!
Nominations open on 8/8 and close on 8/10.
We’re excited to announce the winners of our Get Loud Awards! And honored to support these remarkable organizations:
So get thinking, get inspired, and get over to Instagram to tell us all about organizations that could turn $10,000 into impact!
Who can nominate?
ANYONE can make a nomination for this award unless you work for The Elevate Prize Foundation (we think that would be a little too insider-y). Nominate an organization whose work you believe in, or nominate your OWN organization!
How are winners chosen?
Organizations can be nominated infinite times, but that won’t impact judging. Winners will be chosen by the Elevate team regardless of number or nominations, based on their mission, budget, and impact.
