The Youth in Permaculture Prize 2019

    Abundant Earth Foundation is very proud to announce the winners of this year’s Youth in Permaculture Prize! This is the second year we have offered over $6,000 in prize support to 3 youth-led projects from around the world. From war-torn Afghanistan,​ to climate-impacted Kenya, to an arid community along the US/Mexican border, these young people are using permaculture to turn challenges into growth opportunities.

Youth truly are the hope for the future! We believe we owe it to them to offer all the support possible to help them create the future they want to live in. Thank you to all those who applied to this year’s YIPP. All of the entries were amazing! We hope to raise the funds this year to expand this prize and offer even more support throughout the year to youth who are making a real difference for a regenerative future. This project is in partnership with Permaculture magazine.

Sierra Robinson is raising her voice for a
Regenerative Future! 


   Suing the Canadian government for not taking action against Climate Change, speaking at TEDx Youth Seattle, and conducting interviews for her media project Chasing Change: it was a busy summer for AEF’s friend and Youth in Permaculture Prize judge, 17-year-old Sierra Robinson. When Sierra’s TED talk, “Beyond Sustainable: A call for Regeneration,” is released, we will share the link. In the meantime, here is an article about Sierra joining 15 other Canadian youth to sue their government for not acting to protect their generation against Climate Change, jeopardizing their right to a healthy future, and for the damage they already suffered from Climate Change.
