The 2017 call for nominations is now open!

Who can be nominated?

Individuals, institutions, organizations or other entities engaged in Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). Nominations must focus on a specific ESD project or programme of the nominee, meeting the eligibility criteria.

Who can submit nominations?

Nominations can be submitted to the Director-General of UNESCO by Governments of Member States via their Permanent Delegation to UNESCO, and by Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in official partnership with UNESCO. Each Permanent Delegation or NGO can make up to three nominations for any edition of the Prize. Self-nominations are not accepted.

How to submit nominations?

1. Complete the Online Nomination Form
 
The nomination form must be completed online in English or French via a platform accessible through the UNESCO website at this link (for nominating entities only - the fields of the nomination form can be viewed here).
  • Nominations must be completed online by the Permanent Delegation to UNESCO of the concerned Member State, or by an NGO in official partnership with UNESCO, through their official account.
  • It is possible for National Commissions to UNESCO to access and complete the online form. However, any nomination by a National Commission will need to be submitted by the Permanent Delegation to UNESCO of the respective Member State. An automatic notification message will be sent to the official e-mail address of the Delegation to this end.
  • If a National Commission or Permanent Delegation to UNESCO wishes that the form be completed electronically by the nominees, UNESCO can create a UNESTEAMS account for each nominee. A request should be sent to esdprize@unesco.org before 14 April 2017. After completion of the online form by the nominee, the concerned National Commission and Permanent Delegation will receive a notification e-mail and can review the nomination before the Permanent Delegation submits to UNESCO.
  • Attention should be paid to presenting the project/programme of the nominee in a clear and structured way, following the instructions given in the form.
  • All supporting material (e.g. publications, photos, videos) must be transmitted electronically through the online system.
  • While completing the Form, please also keep in mind that the project/programme will be assessed by the Jury on the basis of the selection criteria.

2. Submit the Online Nomination Form

  • Nominations have to be submitted in the online system by the concerned Permanent Delegations to UNESCO or the NGO by midnight of 2 May 2017 (UTC+1, Paris time).
  • Kindly note that each Permanent Delegation or NGO may not submit more than three nominations.
