Brower Youth Awards

Since 2000, the Brower Youth Award, the flagship event of the New Leaders Initiative program, has recognized outstanding youth leaders who are making strides in the environmental movement. The public ceremony and award is made possible by the New Leaders Initiative which is housed at  Earth Island Institute.  Each year, six young people based in North America are awarded the Brower Youth Award prize, joining a growing movement of youth leaders who are publicly recognized for their sustainable projects, innovative ideas, and informed analyses.

The goal of the New Leaders Initiative is to identify, engage, grow and support youth environmental leaders. This goal is met by raising the profile of young emerging environmental leaders at the Brower Youth Awards ceremony. In addition to the ceremony event, New Leaders Initiative produces year round programming such as “Movement in Green” and “Rooted and Rising” that serve as capacity building for environmental leadership. 

Our youth leadership training and alumni services includes professional skill building, webinars, coaching, networking events, workshops, community partnerships, and providing access to resources and relationships to lead and sustain effective campaigns and projects.

Earth Island Institute established The Brower Youth Award for Environmental Leadership in 2000 to honor renowned environmental advocate David Brower, who was quoted as saying “I love to see what young people can do, before someone old tells them it’s impossible.” It is with this spirit that we recognize the outstanding leadership efforts of young people who are working for the protection of our shared planet.

Youth environmental change leaders ages 13 to 22 (as of July 1, 2018) living in North America (including Mexico, Canada, some Caribbean Islands) and US “Territories” are encouraged to apply.

Award Details
Each of the six recipients of the Brower Youth Awards will receive a $3,000 cash prize, a professionally produced short film about their work from an Emmy award winning film crew, and flight and lodging accommodations for a week long trip to the San Francisco Bay Area.
