African Innovators shine during Zayed Sustainability Prize’s 2019 Awards ceremony

African innovators excelled at this year’s Zayed Sustainability Prize annual awards ceremony, winning in three out of five categories including Energy, Food and Global High Schools.

The 2019 Zayed Sustainability Prize, which is the UAE’s pioneering global award in sustainability, honoured leaders whose work and spirit of enterprise has resulted in working solutions across communities around the world. With over 2,000 submissions from 130 countries, the highest number of applications came from Africa, which is a testament to the growing role African innovators are playing in global innovation. Their technologies addressed real-life social, environmental, health and economic challenges, as well as reflected the aspirations of a new generation of innovators within a continent that has one of the world’s biggest youth populations.
