Since 2000, the Brower Youth Awards program has recognized outstanding emerging youth leaders in the environmental movement. A signature program of Earth Island Institute's New Leaders Initiative, Brower Youth Awards (BYA) celebrates the accomplishments of young environmental leaders. Each year, six young people based in North America are awarded the prize and provided extensive mentorship. They will join a growing and diverse group of youth leaders who are publicly recognized for their sustainable and innovative solutions.
Pre Event Reception begins at 5:30 pm. Doors open for the Awards Ceremony at 6:45 pm.
