2017 Opportunity Opens February 1, 2017~

Hello, Conscious Business Owner!

We know you hold environmentalist philanthropy as a core value. Many of you enjoyed enhanced visibility at the 2016 Brower Youth Awards. And we are already busy planning the 18th annual ceremony. We’d like to invite you to consider the opportunity to promote your business as well as demonstrate your support for the next generation of dynamic environmental leaders.

In its first 17 years, the Brower Youth Awards (BYA) has become the top prize for young environmental leaders in North America. A keystone element of the Earth Island Institute’s year-round New Leadership Initiative (NLI), BYA culminates in an extraordinary and inspiring evening event where 1,000 guests convene to honor and support these remarkable young people.

More importantly, business partnership with Earth Island Institute is not a one-night-thing. Many of our business partners are choosing to form closer alliances with Earth Island Institute -- attending our public events; meeting our staff; volunteering with our projects; and even working with, mentoring, and networking with our BYA alumni. We will be rolling out special events for our partners, and of course inviting you to our other public events and other happenings.

You can be proud to know that your support helps underwrite ongoing, year-round NLI activities that sustain and promote the next generation of leadership. With 110 activists honored over 17 years, and more than 80 percent of our BYA alumni still working for environmental and social change, we are attentive to our next phase of program development. With the partnership of our business supporters, we look forward to further developing the networking and mentoring opportunities that will help our leaders to advance. Your voice and influence could contribute substantially and help create reciprocal learning with these brilliant youthful leaders.

Join Us! Together, we can be stronger in our efforts to sustain the Earth. We know that our ROI proposition is good for the Earth, good for tomorrow’s leaders, AND good for your business, we look forward to hearing from you!
