Our society has been battling a pandemic, but our planet is in a fight for its life. Mother Nature needs our help to win the war known as the Climate Crisis. Temperatures are changing and extreme weather phenomenona are occurring and a greater rate. The time has come to put a stop to the devastation and save our planet.

Scientists predict that if we don't turn things around we can expect increased not just warmer temperatures, but increased forest fires, flooding, hurricanes, droughts, and other extreme weather events costing billions of dollars annually, harming and displacing millions of people.

Israel has earned the nickname of Start-Up Nation for its numerous breakthrough technological innovations and having the most startups per capita of any nation in the world. The Climate Solutions Prize will leverage Israel's special abilities to solve seemingly impossible challenges in order to bring literal Tikkun Olam (healing of the world).


  • Israel is known as the Startup Nation, whose innovations have had outsize impact on the world. However, much of the innovation has been in the areas of Internet, medical, and financial technology where there is greater funding.
  • Spur increased funding and investment in green technology to have the energy of the Startup Nation focused on solving the climate crisis.
  • Because of its organizational DNA, JNF is uniquely positioned to facilitate an initiative (a plan) which will build on its existing achievements to safeguard them while making even greater impact.

As well, the Climate Solutions Prize will fund prizes for innovative solutions in local JNF communities.

The Climate Solutions Prize is being presented to incentivize and motivate the best and brightest non-for-profit researchers and/or organizations throughout Israel with funding to curb the climate crisis. This prize will consist of an annual 1 Million USD fund that will be awarded to applicants as evaluated by a world-class judging panel. Prize recipients will be announced at a live ceremony, which will take place in the heart of Israel and viewed across the world.

  • Create a fund to award $1M US in annual prizes that will fund the most innovative, high global impact, executable ideas from Israeli non-profits as evaluated by a world-class judging panel.
  • High profile nature of prize would also create recognition opportunities for named sponsors by being featured on a first-class Web site, signage at events (including press events and annual award ceremony) and more.
  • Offer good governance in tracking all awards and progress the winners are making toward their objectives.

In addition, the Climate Solutions Prize will fund prizes for innovative solutions in local JNF communities.
