The UNDP Equator Initiative is pleased to announce the Equator Prize 2022 Award Ceremony on 30 November 2022 at 9AM EST (GMT-04) as part of the final day of the virtual Nature for Life Hub (for time conversion check here). Sign up for the latest announcements and be the first to receive the link for the ceremony’s live stream here. Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Equator Initiative, the ceremony will celebrate the achievements of the ten winners of the Equator Prize 2022, coming from nine countries. These outstanding Indigenous peoples and local communities won the prestigious Equator Prize for their groundbreaking work advancing nature-based solutions for green economies, climate resilience, and innovative conservation models. With four of this year’s prize-winning organizations being women-led, and all ten promoting gender equality in their community, this group of winners showcases the importance of inclusive local development. The event will feature renowned musicians, celebrities, activists, Indigenous and local voices, as well as mini-documentaries about each winning community. The ceremony will be streamed in English on the Nature for Life Hub website as well as the Equator Initiative YouTube and Facebook channels. Spanish, French, and Portuguese versions of the ceremony will be made available online for viewing about a week after the ceremony. This year’s winners include groups from Argentina, Brazil, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Gabon, Ghana, Panama, Papua New Guinea, and Mozambique. The ceremony will also mark the Equator Initaitive’s 20th anniversary, recognizing 274 winners to date.
