Meet the Zayed Sustainability Prize Finalists
By Kelly Clarke
This Monday, 10 candidates from a total of 30 finalists will be announced as winners of the 2020 Zayed Sustainability Prize.
The major international award now covers five categories, including health, food, energy and water. Education is addressed through its ‘global high schools’ category.
This year, finalists include start-ups which have developed technologies to combat plastic waste and the spread of disease, as well as improving access to clean electricity.
The winners will be chosen from across all categories and will each be awarded $600,000 (Dh2.2 million). Here, The National takes a closer look at some of those in contention.
