The Unilever Young Entrepreneurs Awards

Ideas that can change the world for the better

At Unilever, we know that innovation will play a key role in creating a world in which sustainable living is commonplace. We believe the social and environmental challenges facing the world can be overcome - but only if people, including ourselves, are prepared to do things differently. We see a big opportunity to support, inspire, reward and collaborate with a new generation of the world’s most inspiring young change-makers from all over the world with brilliant new initiatives that can bring about the positive change we need.

Unilever’s Young Entrepreneurs Awards are all about supporting and celebrating inspirational young people from all over the world with existing initiatives, products or services that are tackling some of the planet’s biggest sustainability challenges.
