The UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development honours outstanding projects by individuals, institutions and organizations related to ESD.
It was awarded for the first time in November 2015 to three organizations:
- Asociación SERES from Guatemala/El Salvador for its "ESD Youth Ambassadors" programme
- Jayagiri Centre from Indonesia for its "Eco-friendly entrepreneurship for youth and adults" initiative
- rootAbility from Germany for its "Green Office Model"
They were selected for outstanding projects inspiring and empowering youth to take action to create more sustainable lifestyles through individual and collective activities and commitment.
What have the three Prize winners been doing since the awarding last year? How are their projects growing and how are they spending the Prize money?
