The “Changemakers for the Planet” programme is looking for young changemakers who tackle climate change, biodiversity loss, air, sea and land pollution. Changemakers for the Planet welcome applications from changemakers from a variety of backgrounds working to address the planetary crisis, including social entrepreneurs and innovators, social change agents and activists, and civil society leaders.
