AFN encourages young people around the world to carry out individual environmental action projects. They believe that young people can have a positive impact on the environment and are vital in changing the way we live on our planet.
Winners will receive:

Just as importantly, winners will serve as role models for other young people by demonstrating that each individual can make a difference.
