Millennial on a Mission

This award, sponsored by the Ministry of Youth Development, celebrates a young person who is driving sustainability change within their organisation or the wider community.

2018 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards Launch

Young people can make a big difference to sustainability within the organisations they work at, and in the wider community. We’re looking for a millennial who is passionate about making change and inspiring others within their organisation: an intrapreneur who promotes innovation within their company.

This award will be presented to a young person (aged 27 or under) who has gone above and beyond to drive sustainability change, either within their organisation or in the wider community.

The finalists for the 2018 Millennial on a Mission Award are:

Olie Body
Finn Lawrence
Catherine Lea
Maddison McQueen-Davies
Siddhartha Mehta
Holly Norton
Olivia Philpott
Danny Pritchard


We asked the Ministry of Youth Development what inspired them to support the NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards:

“The Ministry of Youth Development (MYD) – Te Manatū Whakahiato Taiohi – encourages and supports young people to develop and use knowledge, skills and experiences to participate confidently in their communities.

“Recognising and celebrating a young person who has driven sustainable change, either within their organisation or in the wider community, makes sense to MYD. Rangatahi are the future of Aotearoa New Zealand. By encouraging and enabling them to become innovative trailblazers, they’re supported to achieve positive outcomes that benefit all New Zealanders.”
