You can NOW apply for the Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards 2024!

Together with the Women and Gender Constituency (WGC), we are happy to announce that the call for applications for the annual Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards is now open!  

(You can apply in French, English, Spanish, or Arabic by clicking the link you find at the bottom of this page) 

The Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards are granted every year to grassroots, community groups and non-governmental organizations tackling the climate emergency while advancing gender equality. These solutions are leading community solutions and system-changing climate action that bring multiple social and environmental improvements. They contribute to raising the ambition to achieve the 1.5-degree target by 2030. 

Three winners are selected by a diverse group of jury members from the WGC following an open and transparent process and are announced during an official, high-level ceremony at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP). 

Winning solutions are showcased across three different project categories: 

  • Technical – gender-responsive climate solutions focusing on technologies, i.e. water, RE, food production or transformation, digitalization, waste reduction etc. 
  • Non-technical – gender-responsive climate solutions focusing on behavioral change, mutual learning, skills sharing, capacity strengthening etc. 
  • Transformational – gender-responsive climate solutions focusing on addressing governance, institutional / societal change etc. 

Each winner receives a €5000 monetary award, a chance to attend COP29, which will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan, fully covered travel, and enter WECF’s long-term mentoring programme which supports them in strengthening and upscaling their leading solutions. Up to 20 nominees’ projects are presented in the Awards publication, on our online platforms, and at the Awards Ceremony during the COP. 

Through these Awards, leading solutions for a more just, equal and healthy planet are showcased.
