About the award

Pivot Green connects and celebrates people, businesses, and communities with stories and ideas to inspire restorative climate action and social justice. Pivot Green strongly believes that minor lifestyle changes can often blossom into major societal changes.


One of our primary goals is to support young Canadians working together with other generations on positive, impactful ideas and actions that help address climate anxiety and the climate change challenges of our times.To support this objective, Pivot Green, in partnership with the Small Change Fund, has created the Canadian Youth Climate Action Award.

The award provides $5,000 and a plaque to the grand prize winner. A second-place prize of $2,500 and two $1,000 prizes will be awarded to projects of merit.  Honourable mention prizes of $500 will also be distributed.


The awards will be given to the programs/projects that best meet the Pivot Green mission and values. Specifically, we will be recognizing programs/projects that best meets the following criteria:

  • Is primarily a youth-led, local, and community-based initiative

  • Involves a range of ages in its outreach and activities

  • Has positive environmental and social impacts

  • Leads to concrete, climate-friendly changes

  • Has the potential to be replicated in other Canadian communities


Donors will be issued tax receipts and all financial matters will be administered by the Small Change Fund. Use this link to go to our donor page to make a donation to support the Award.

Award winners will be asked to provide Pivot Green with a short video, an update on their activities and provide news items suitable for posting on the Small Change, Pivot Green website, and social media channels when available.
