The objective of the ENERGY GLOBE Award is to present successful sustainable projects to a global audience and to demonstrate that for many environmental problems feasible solutions already exist. Projects submitted from over 170 countries take part each year in the awards.
For 2018 innovative projects and smart technologies from around the world are invited to take part again. Participation is open to projects with focus on resource conservation, improving air and water quality, energy efficiency and renewable energies. But also projects that focus on the creation of awareness in these areas will be eligible to participate.
Every individual, private or public institution, companies, NGOs, etc. can submit a project. The submission is free.
The best projects will be honored as part of a ceremony that will be broadcast worldwide as well as featured by the international media. International winning projects for the 6 award categories of Earth, Fire, Water, Air, Youth and "Sustainable Plastics" will also each receive a cash award.
In each country the best project is awarded the National Energy Globe Award and presented at the global online platform of Energy Globe.
New: The special category on the issue «sustainable plastics» is a novelty this year.

Illustration Photo: Climate change means the region receives less rain than it used to and the rains – when they come – are very hard to predict. This places extra pressure on pastoralists in the region, who must travel further to find pasture for their animals, mostly cows. Combined with an influx of small arms in the area, this pressure has intensified competition for resources and violence between local groups such as the Samburu and Turkana peoples.
