Call for entries:2014 Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards

unilever2014_banner_competitionUnilever is once again inviting young people to come up with practical and innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest sustainability challenges and enter them in the Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards.


Open to anyone aged 30 or under, Unilever is looking for scalable and sustainable products, services or applications that reduce environmental impacts, improve health and well-being or enhance livelihoods through changes in practices or behaviours.

The Awards, run in partnership with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), and in collaboration with Ashoka, offer seven young people a total of more than €200,000 in financial support and individually tailored mentoring. The overall winner also receives the prestigious HRH The Prince of Wales Young Sustainability Entrepreneur Prize.

All seven finalists take part in an online development programme and then participate in a two-day accelerator workshop at Cambridge University, UK, where expert help and professional guidance is provided to help them develop their ideas.



The competition is open to individuals 30 years old or younger, from any part of the world.

Innovations must have grown beyond the conceptual stage—with the product, process or enterprise already gaining traction among local communities or other markets. Entries must change behaviour to enable sustainable living.

Entries cannot be accepted from current Unilever employees, nor can entries promote Unilever or its products.

Applications must be submitted in English. (The online programme, accelerator event and the pitch will all be delivered in English—proficiency in written and oral English is required.)

Solutions must relate to one or more of the categories listed below:

Improving Health & Well-Being

  • water, sanitation and hygiene
  • nutrition

Reducing Environmental Impact

  • water scarcity
  • greenhouse gases
  • waste
  • sustainable agriculture

Enhancing Livelihoods

  • smallholder farmers
  • opportunities for women
  • micro enterprise
  • Six finalists will receive cash prizes of €10,000, along with support and mentorship (worth €10,000).
  • One winner will receive €50,000 cash prize and will be awarded the HRH The Prince of Wales Young Sustainability Entrepreneur Prize at a prestigious dinner event in London in January 2015 and €25,000 worth of support and mentoring.

All will benefit from exposure to a range of leading sustainability experts, entrepreneurs and investors during the process, along with recognition via Unilever’s global channels and the global networks of the University of Cambridge and Ashoka.

How to enter:

Applications must be submitted online through the Ashoka Changemakers website between 23 June and 1 August 2014.

Seven finalists will be announced during the week of 27th October 2014. All finalists will be required to join online sessions beginning in November 2014 to develop their ideas and build their networks. Attendance is also required at the Accelerator Workshop in Cambridge, UK, and the awards dinner that same month, during which the HRH The Prince of Wales Prize will be awarded.
