In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These United Nations Sustainable Development Goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. AFS knows that social, economic and other important issues today transcend national boundaries and cannot be resolved by any one group alone.
Alongside our other AFS Global Awards, this prize reaffirms AFS’s commitment to developing active global citizens from all backgrounds. To solve pressing 21st century challenges, AFS develops Active Global Citizens who take action to make a positive difference wherever they live, learn, work and volunteer.
This prize is made possible thanks to a generous AFS alumni donor who wishes to remain anonymous.
