Toyota is committed to realizing sustainable development together with society, and to do that, they’ve created the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050. By 2050, Toyota has pledged to go beyond a zero environmental impact, achieve a net positive impact, and has set six initiatives to get them there.
In partnership with Toyota, NationSwell’s “Be a Vehicle of Change” contest will highlight and empower the innovators and entrepreneurs who are working on the most pressing environmental issues of our time.
3 Vehicle of Change winners will receive:
- A 3- to 5-minute video about their work, made by NationSwell story producers
- Grant money to do more good: $25,000 for the first place winner; $15,000 for the second place winner and $10,000 for the third place winner
- Social media promotion and content sharing with industry influencers
7 runners-up will also each be featured in a 500- to 750-word article showcasing their work.
In 2015, Toyota introduced the Mirai, a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. It’s one of the world’s first mass-produced, hydrogen fuel cell, electric vehicles. It competes with traditional vehicles – but uses no gasoline. Instead, the Mirai creates electricity and emits nothing but water vapor. The Mirai is a Vehicle of Change that will help change the future of the mobility.
Nominations for the Vehicle of Change contest have ended. Check back here to see the #VehicleOfChange winners announced Friday, October 27.
