REvolutionaries: The Steve Sawyer Memorial Award

Award Pillars

The “REvolutionaries” award is centred around three main pillars which reflect the values and mission of Steve Sawyer.

The “REvolutionaries” award has a different regional focus for each annual program cycle, reflecting Steve Sawyer’s global footprint and lasting impact on the worldwide renewable energy community. In 2020, the programme will award a recipient whose work targets a country or countries in Africa.

Who can apply?

In 2020, the program will focus on renewable energy leaders in Africa, working in the public sector, private sector or civil society. Applicants must work in, or their work must target, one or several countries in Africa (countries in Africa to be defined by membership of the African Union).

Application requirements include: 

5+ years of professional experience;

A track record of leadership and achievement in professional career; and

Professional working proficiency in English (written and spoken).

Selection Process

Eligible applications will be reviewed by a Jury composed of individuals with deep insight into Steve’s personal and professional values. They collectively represent members of Steve’s family, GWEC, REN21 and Greenpeace.

Applications are judged on a point-based system, with up to 5 points awarded for each of the five Guiding Principles, for a potential total of 25 points. Applicants are also required to submit a short personal statement on their use of prize funds, which will be considered in the context of the entire application package, and will not be allocated points.

Following verification of references, a shortlist of finalists undergoes another round of judging on a point-based system. In the event of a tie, the Jury will determine the winner upon deliberation.
