The WAF Awards 

In a world where negative news get the spotlight, hope comes from acknowledging the good. At WAFA, our goal is to make water, clean air and food undeniable human rights. We acknowledge and promote outstanding individuals and organisations who are creating sustainable solutions to bring water, clean air and food to all. We present them with the WAF Award, and we strive to give them the visibility they deserve to continue making this world a better place. 

By celebrating people and their solutions, we share with the world ideas that work and help turn them into best practices. By receiving recognition and support, these pioneers can carry on the wonderful work in bringing water, clean air and food to those who need them most. They become the models of best practices this world desperately needs.

How to Apply

From April 22 to June 12, the call for applications is open to any individual or organisation developing and implementing breakthrough solutions for sustainable water, food and clean air practices.

A committee of experts will select a short list of initiatives that best meet the selection criteria: sustainability, innovation, empowerment, scalability, replicability and social and environmental impact.

Then, you will have the chance to vote for your favourite project from the short list; share it with the world and gather support to make sure they win the WAF Award. You decide who the world celebrates this year!
