Water Air Food Awards: Recognizing the Heroes among us

Our world is in crisis. Some argue over the causes; others call for action. Meanwhile, there are those who act to secure everyone’s basic needs and rights: clean water air, and food.


WAF Awards: A Celebration of Hope

Since 2008, WAFA has been honouring these “exceptional pioneers” from all around the world and telling their stories.

This year the WAF Awards Ceremony will be held at the Beijing Forum, China, from November 4-6. The gala event honours award finalists and their groundbreaking initiatives. It also gains them global exposure and connection with strategic partners around the world.
