This year, the awards will have an exciting new change! The 2024 YGC Recoupling Awards will be hosted in categories that acknowledge the different methods of effort towards recoupling objectives. As such, the Reimagine Business, Reimagine Social and Climate Action, and Reimagine Civic Engagement Awards were created!
Are you a leader of a social enterprise that produces and operates sustainably? Does your business directly combat social or climate issues through its work? Maybe you are a leader of an organization that equips marginalized communities with the tools, resources, or skills to lead more empowered, healthier, safer lives? Are you working on ways to make decision making more participatory and inclusive? Perhaps you are creating avenues for people to become more engaged in their civic space.
