More About Favourites To Win

We’ve highlighted the favourites for the 2019 awards below with a short summary of why they are on the list, along with their odds of winning this coveted award.

Greta Thunberg

Greta Thunberg
Greta Thunberg

The widest-known climate activist right now.

From one act of defiance via a social media hashtag to speaking out in front of world leaders in the recent United Nations talks on climate. The #Fridayforfuture hashtag has encouraged millions of youngsters across the world to stand up, demanding something to be done now in the fight against climate change.

One youngster from Sweden has kickstarted the movement which many of the world leaders have failed to do, or they have simply ignored. With the planet’s health at stake, this is surely one of the most important topics on the table at the moment.

Jacinda Ardern

Jacinda Ardern
Jacinda Ardern

Prime Minister of New Zealand serving since 2017.

Jacinda Arden has worked tirelessly since the appalling terrorist attack in Christchurch earlier in the year. Arden acted quickly to put the appropriate measures in place on gun control and spread the shared values of herself and the country she lives in, that those who look to divide us will never succeed.

A shining light for New Zealand and someone that the rest of the world quickly got behind in the fight against terror and how a leader should act in the face of diversity.

Donald Trump

Donald Trump

The American President has certainly divided opinion across the globe with his somewhat different attitudes and tactics of playing out his presidency. What you can’t deny either way is that he is always involved and in the centre of global events.

Trump’s attempts to divide political factors in both the USA and abroad, plus his ongoing battle in changing the overall balance between the public and corporations have not gone unnoticed. Yet, he still draws a lot of attention with his social media ramblings and childish ways. Trump has been a huge figure in 2019 but not always for the right reasons.

Juan Guaido

juan guaido

Juan Gerardo Guaidó Márquez is a Venezuelan politician.

The unexpected leader to have emerged from the tragedy of current-day Venezuela goes by the name of Juan Guaido. The courage of Guaido to stand up against the authoritarian stance of fellow Venezuelan Maduro, and to shine a light on the potential of a peaceful and united country is nothing short of amazing.

It was a case of being in the right place at the right time and now he has the chance to make a real difference for his country and the millions hoping for positive change.

Angela Merkel

Angela Merkel

Merkel is another nominee that has been promoting the urgent need to tackle climate change. Ever since her first term as German chancellor, Merkel has stood by her policies of reducing carbon emissions and although it’s been a rough ride, she has always stood firm.

2019 is to be her last year as chancellor before she steps down and has promised to establish significant climate change legislation plans before her time is up. Only time will tell if she can live up to her promise before she turns ends her reign on the international scene as German chancellor.

Elon Musk

Elon Musk

The man behind SpaceX, Tesla, and many other engineering breakthroughs over the last few years is another favourite option for many people in this year’s awards. Musk’s passionate drive towards bringing humanity closer to space and the potential of life outside the earth’s atmosphere easily catches the attention of the public.

His innovative thinking towards a cleaner and more efficient way of living also connect with those more worried about the state of our own planet. It’s people like Musk who have big dreams, and big pockets, that give humanity the chance to evolve.
