Africa Green Media Award
The importance of media practitioners in the green sector cannot be overemphasized, this award is aimed at recognizing their efforts toward sustainability as they use their voices and pens to amplify the issues faced by several people and create awareness for climate change in their respective African countries.
This award is open to individuals from TV stations, magazine and newspaper outlets, online platforms and radio stations that have done or are doing episodes, reports, publicity, film or music on the environment with the potential to bring constructive change and to broadly increase public awareness and understanding of issues focusing on the environment in Africa.
Green Female Award
The contributions of women in socio-economic development have not been duly recognized. It begins at the family and community levels where women have been playing the role of managing resources for centuries. Women depend on and are direct users of natural resources. As such, they are the most affected by environmental degradation. Women have been coming up with meaningful solutions, sustainable alternatives and conservative measures to solve environmental challenges. The Green Female Award Category aims to shine the light on the innovative and creative ways young African women are changing the world.
All over Africa, women are working hard and pioneering the vision to rescue the environment from the brink of collapse. They are championing the cause to preserve our planet. They are unstoppable and the Green Female Award Category recognizes their consistent efforts in the Green sector.
Under 40 Green Award
No one is ever too old to do amazing things. Nonetheless, most policies and programs focus on celebrating the contributions of youth under 35. The need to raise the bar to accommodate people who are courageous and determined to help create a better future through the green sector as they grow older is even more urgent in Africa where socio-economic dynamics constrain people from achieving their best at an early age. This award category encourages those who discover their purpose later in life. It is never too late to start, especially in the environmental and agricultural sector where each and every little contribution makes a great impact.

MONDAY LINES: Obasanjo’s (D)Art Of Condolence
Ben Guriano of The Washington Post described them in 2018 as ‘taboo enforcers.’ These are trolls seeking to upend truth and subvert facts about the life and times of the dead. ‘Do not speak ill of the dead’ came originally from a Spartan philosopher, then it was latinated by the Romans to read De mortuis nihil nisi bonum – and got spread around the world like Chinese viruses. The black man, as in all cases, contracted the no-no and turned it into a religion, got drunk with it and won’t mind killing for it…
