WWF AWARD: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Each year, WWF International awards an outstanding youth from a defined geographic region with the President’s Youth Award. This year, the region will be Central and Eastern Europe (including Austria)!
Nominees are reviewed and the winner(s) are selected by an international team of WWF staff. The top nominees are invited to attend the next Global WWF leaders conference (where the top decision-makers meet) which will take place in Austria in May 2020!
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
A globally recognized award. The highest WWF youth award given annually to outstanding young changemakers.

My inspiration comes from the earth itself, all the beauty of life expressed in so many ways. My motivation comes from the people around me who are fighting every day to protect their families and their home, the Amazonian rainforest. I am very thankful to receive this prize because to me this prize not only honours my work, but it honours the work of everyone that fights by my side for the well-being of our planet and our people.Nina Gualinga
