Clifford Chance's annual global United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) Award recognises and supports outstanding achievement in contributing towards the achievement of the UN SDGs.
In 2022 we welcomed applications for the award from non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and educational institutions, including schools and universities, around the world, whose work contributes towards the achievement of SDG 4, which is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. The judges were particularly interested in award submissions that demonstrated a commitment to innovative approached towards the achievement of SDG 4 and those showed potential to be replicated and scaled.
Clifford Chance provided the winning organisation with a £50,000 donation and 500 pro bono hours. The winner was chosen by a judging panel including representatives of Clifford Chance, the firm's strategic pro bono partners, and clients.
Applications are now closed for 2022. Congratulations to our winner Jangala!
