10–12 September in Warsaw, Poland:

In September 2024, FoodPLUS GmbH (GlobalG.A.P. and the GGN label) will launch the first annual Changemaker Awards at the GlobalG.A.P. Summit 2024, which will take place 10–12 September in Warsaw, Poland. The award recognizes winners for their commitment to promoting responsible farming practices and fostering positive social change. Interested candidates from the three categories “producers”, “retailers”, and “certification bodies” can apply from 10 April to 10 May 2024.

The award focuses on cross-industry initiatives that foster responsible change in the industry by exemplifying responsible agricultural cultivation methods and implementing innovative approaches to resource efficiency, promoting socio-economic development and the well-being of local actors along global supply chains who are committed to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, and contributing to the transfer of knowledge and education as well as supporting inclusivity and diversity in local communities.

The international jury, consisting of the organization’s senior management and Advisory Board, will shortlist nine candidates from the applications whose innovative practices and forward-thinking concepts make a significant contribution to the common good. These nine candidates will be presented at SUMMIT 2024. The final three award winners (one from each of the three categories) will be selected by democratic vote of SUMMIT attendees and will receive their Changemaker 2024 award during the evening event on 10 September.

The application deadline for the Changemaker Awards is 10 May 2024, and applications will be accepted via an online form on the Summit 2024 website. Participation and application for the Changemaker Awards is free of charge. The invitation to the SUMMIT in Warsaw is also free of charge for the nine shortlisted candidates. In order to encourage and inspire creativity in the application process there are no requirements or predefined criteria for applying.
