The second edition of the MEGAFONE ACTIVISM AWARD will take place in April 2023 and is an initiative of a coalition of organizations that includes Pimp My Carroça, Instituto Socioambiental (ISA), WWF, Greenpeace Brasil, Engajamundo, Hivos and Vozes Pela Ação Climática Justiça (VAC). 

 

One of the biggest challenges we have in 2023 and in the coming years in Brazil is to fight the deterioration of environmental policies, the high rates of deforestation and fires, among other climate impacts. The same happens with social issues. With the weakening of these policies, which is at its peak, we understand that it is very important to strengthen the organized civil society and activism presents itself as one of the most important tools we have to stop setbacks and guarantee rights. 

The Megafone Awards intend to contribute to increasing the visibility of activist actions, fostering the practice of activism as a catalyst for social transformation and the emergence of new agents in activism, especially young people and women, in the debate and action to combat the climate crisis and related causes. The award legitimizes activism in the current political context, both in urban centers and in the digital space, with a main focus on socio-environmental activism, but not restricted to it. 

There will be 70 nominees and 14 awardees, in 14 categories.
