The online awards ceremony will take place on the Facebook pages of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, the EU Delegation in Azerbaijan and the United Nations Development Programme on Saturday, 22 August 2020, starting at 11:00 hours. Multiple prizes will be announced every hour, including the best three ideas eligible for prizes worth 3,000, 2,000 and 1,000 AZN.
The Ozun Yarat platform was launched as part of the #EUforClimate regional initiative, funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) which aims to help accelerate climate action in all six countries of the Eastern Partnership region.
