The online public polls for the Best Climate Solutions Award on climate change communication are open from September 24, 2018, until October 15, 2018 (5.00 pm CEST).

Over 40 proposals from around the world are in the running for the this year’s edition and everyone can support their favorite ones by participating in the online voting.

The winning project of the Best Climate Solutions 2018 Award on “Communicating climate change threats and opportunities” will be determined by a combination of both the online voting results and the assessment by the international jury of experts (read more about this year’s jurors).

The finalists and the winner will be announced on December 4, 2018, at the Festival for the Earth 2018 in Venice. The author of the winning project will be invited to present the proposal during a high-level event featuring Nobel, Pulitzer, and Goldman Prize winners, and will receive a prize of 3000 euros, co-sponsored by the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change and the Festival for the Earth.
