The King Abdullah II Award for Youth Innovation and Achievement (KAAYIA) 2015


 Launched by His Majesty King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein at the World Economic Forum in 2007, The King Abdullah II Award for Youth Innovation and Achievement (KAAYIA), celebrates and supports young men and women throughout the Arab region who have pioneered innovative solutions to urgent social, economic and environmental challenges.



The biennial Award is designed to promote creative problem-solving and cross-border dialogue and cooperation among Arab youth.



Through shining a much needed spot-light on youth-led social change, the KAAYIA seeks to encourage present and future generations of Arab youth to assume their roles as active citizens.



The KAAYIA is awarded to youth, aged 18 to 30, across the Arab region. Applications are reviewed against three core criteria; Leadership & Innovation, Collaboration & Partnership, Impact & sustainability.



Each winner receives a monetary award to expand the scope and impact of their work, while all 10 finalists receive capacity building training and recognition for the exemplary work they are doing.
