Humanitarian Water Air Food Awards
WAFA is about telling stories to the world and sharing the good deeds done by wonderful people in the fields of water, air and food. Its mission is to create a message of hope - to create a counterbalance to all the negativity in the world. This concept was developed in 2006 by Tina Lindgreen, a Danish leadership coach. By 2008, WAF – The Humanitarian Award for Water and Food was live. The first major awards ceremony was presented in Copenhagen in 2010. Since then, WAFA has had shows in London – 2014, and in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – 2015, where WAF announced it’s expansion to include air. WAF became WAFA – the Humanitarian Water Air Food Awards.
WAFA believes that clean water and air and healthy food are every person’s birthright. Together, we can all make that a reality. WAFA works to identify innovative visionaries, from around the world, who are creating proven breakthrough solutions. We call them Exceptional Pioneers.
They are exceptional pioneers in the areas of food, air and water – and they can be found all over the globe, from urban jungle to rural tundra. We are interested in hearing from or about everyone. We want to bring them into the limelight of public awareness, so that more opportunities will be available to them; they need to be recognized and celebrated for all the fantastic deeds they’re doing for our world.
The call for applications to the Humanitarian Water Air Food Awards is open to individuals, groups and organisations, operating anywhere in the world to develop and implement solutions that bring water, food and clean air to those in need. The main condition for applying is for the project to have had at least two years of proven experience and success in bringing relevant change.
The highlight of the year is the award ceremony, at which the winners are presented with the WAF Award trophy. The ceremony is a celebration of hope where award finalists and their exceptional initiatives receive international exposure and the opportunities for connecting with strategic partners across the globe. Here they share their experiences with academics, business leaders, and the world.
To apply to the awards, download and fill in the application form at the link above, and send it to us at email@example.com. Include any relevant documentation that can help us better understand and evaluate your project.
After this date, an expert committee will evaluate all applications based on the above criteria, and select a shortlist of qualified projects. These pioneers will then be featured in our ‘Bring Them To The World’ campaign to create global awareness and support, and the finalists and winners will be decided by public vote.
