Colombian youth network wins sustainability award

The Win Win Youth Award 2021 goes to the Colombian youth network Red Uva for its innovative work in visualizing and fighting corruption.
The Win Win Gothenburg Sustainability Award, of which Chalmers is a co-founder, has been a leading global sustainability award for more than 20 years. Since a couple of years, the international Win Win Youth Award has also been awarded to young people between the ages of 13 and 29, along with a prize money of SEK 50,000.

This year's theme is anti-corruption, a necessary building block in the work for a sustainable world, and among 220 nominations received from 52 countries, the jury has now named Red Uva the winner of the Win Win Youth Award 2021. 

Red Uva was founded by Colombian university students with the aim to fight the widespread corruption in Colombia, and in its motivation, the jury also emphasizes the network's ability to mobilize and strengthen young people in general politics in Colombia.

"Red Uva shows the importance of working against corruption, both reactive and preventive. Their innovative way of promoting a culture based on justice, transparency, and inclusion through multidisciplinary education and information strategies has sparked great commitment in Colombia while also spreading inspiration to youth outside the country's borders. We are very proud to present Red Uva as this year's winner of the Win Win Youth Award," says Ahmed Al-Qassam, Chair member of the Win Win Youth Award jury.

The Win Win Youth Award ceremony will take place on October 21, 2021.
