The Award ceremony

The first winners of the Middle East edition of the Voices of Future Generations were announced at a digital award ceremony, streamed live from the Zabeel Ladies Club, Dubai on 27 September 2020. 


The judges had a difficult task, as we had so many wonderful stories perfectly capturing imaginative and insightful visions of what the world could be like and how we might all live together in a more sustainable and tolerant way.
