It brings together young people to identify, examine and propose solutions in support of healthy ecosystems—plants, animals, wildlife—contributing to a healthy sustainable planet,” said Mohammad S. Alshammari, President & Chief Executive Officer, Aramco Americas.
Three project grants ranging from $2,000 to $10,000 are being awarded to winning teams to turn their ideas into reality. Winning teams will be announced in early August during EarthEcho's annual Youth Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., conducted virtually this year.
