The Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity

The Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity, awarded annually, in the amount of 1 million euros, aims to recognize people, groups of people and/or organizations from all over the world whose contributions to mitigation and adaptation to climate change stand out for its novelty, innovation and impact.
Humanity is facing an unprecedented climate crisis with impacts that encompass key sustainable development components such as public health, access to safe drinking water, clean air, food security and secure shelter. Science informs us that the impacts of climate change are advancing at a faster rate than anticipated and may have irreversible effects on our natural systems.
Without drastic change, the consequences will continue to be devastating for humankind, particularly to the most vulnerable.
