The Better Together Award is an international competition seeking collaborative innovations solving local climate challenges.
We highlight the value of impactful collaboration between start-ups, SMEs or NGOs and local governments that jointly implement innovative solutions for effective climate mitigation and adaptation.
The Better Together Award makes successful examples of such collaborative innovations visible to the world. It aims to inspire other local decision-makers and to support the scaling of successful climate action across regions.

Better Together: an award – and a mindset!
We believe in the power of innovation and collaboration to solve pressing climate change mitigation and adaptation challenges across the globe.
Cities, towns and regions are the pioneering places where local solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the effects of climate change need to develop. Start-ups, social enterprises or civil society organisations in all parts of the world are exploring and implementing such new solutions. Often they use digital technologies to make their cities and regions more sustainable and resilient. These solutions can create longer-lasting impact if they are implemented together with local authorities—and can only be effectively realised and scaled if stakeholders adopt a shared mindset of collaboration.
