Two Indian Americans are among five finalists selected for the Children’s Climate Prize, recognizing young people who drive change in the world. The award is instituted by the Children’s Climate Foundation initiated by Telge Energi. The final winner will be announced on Nov. 8 in a digital broadcast, and will receive SEK 100,000 ($11,355), a diploma and a medal.

Indian American finalists include Reshma Kosaraju, 15, of Saratoga, California, and Yash Narayan, 17, of San Carlos, California. Joining them is Anjali Sharma, 17, of Melbourne, Australia. Her project, “Class-Action Environment Minister,” tackles climate change in the courtroom.

Nominations were received from all six continents. Over 30 countries are represented this year, “resulting in hundreds of nominations of young people around the world who are fighting for the environment and climate in different ways.”

Kosaraju’s project, “AI against forest fires – Where technology predicts and limits the damage of forest fires,” uses AI and technology in an innovative and savvy way in order to accurately predict the risk of forest fires while also accounting for the independent variables of climate, weather and human behavior.
