We Celebrate Young Environmental Leaders!

Each year the Brower Youth Award recognizes the work of six young leaders who are making strides in the environmental movement. A signature element of Earth Island Institute’s year-round New Leaders Initiative, Brower Youth Award winners demonstrate excellent leadership as well as a commitment to the communities their work serves. Last year’s Brower Youth Awards ceremony took place on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, California. Relive the celebration and watch the webcast of the 2022 Brower Youth Awards ceremony here.
