Thank you for your contributions to the Amazonia Prize Design! The discussions in the community have helped XPRIZE create the most impactful possible prize design for a competition to benefit the Amazon Rainforest.

We are in the final stages of the prize design process and are anticipating launching this competition in 2019 – details to come!

In the meantime, we are transitioning the community to a "Group" for alumni of the Prize Design. While our current discussions will be closed, we want to give you a place in the community to stay in touch with each other, provide additional ideas and thoughts for the upcoming competition, and for us to share relevant announcements and events with you

The Amazonia Prize Design is an ambitious initiative that aims to identify transformative breakthroughs, with the purpose of incentivizing individuals and groups to implement them.

This project uses multiple methodologies to assess the current landscape of the Amazon and trajectories to future scenarios, including a preferred future of sustainability.

The final product of this process of researching and discussions, the Prize Design, will provide the outline of what the winning team must accomplish to be awarded the prize.

Join this online community of experts to get involved, and share your wisdom with the crowd!

The Challenge

The Amazon Rainforest is under attack. The vast rainforest spans 550 million hectares, but more than 20% of the Amazon biome has been lost already and more is vanishing every minute -- unless we stop it.

The time to end the destruction of the Amazon is now.

The Goal

We are designing an XPRIZE to accelerate and scale innovation that unlocks possibilities to end deforestation and save the Amazon Rainforest.

The Prize Design will provide the outline of what the winning team must accomplish to be awarded the prize and define the parameters of the XPRIZE competition. It is audacious yet achievable.

Your Role

The community is currently debating the challenges and opportunities associated with ending deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest.

We invite you to join us and other experts from around the world to share your wisdom with the crowd and advise us on the design of XPRIZE's Amazon Rainforest XPRIZE!
