The Ashden Awards 2021: celebrating bold and brilliant climate pioneers

This year the annual Ashden Awards celebration will tell visitors to the Glasgow COP and a global online audience the inspiring stories of climate champions from around the world. Champions whose exciting initiatives can fire us towards a low-carbon future.

At 6pm on 4 November, the nine 2021 Award winners will be announced, and we will premiere a film highlighting and celebrating their personal journeys.

Join us in the Green Zone cinema or online to see ground-breaking initiatives in the forests and fields of Africa and India, among refugee camps brimming with energy and entrepreneurship, and in towns and cities up and down the UK. Hear what it takes to become a true climate champion – and how the world can boost these initiatives, and many others like them.

From clean and affordable energy to new jobs and green skills, Ashden Award winners show the awesome potential of climate action. So reserve your tickets now or register online for a whirlwind tour of wonder and inspiration.
