They're shifting the focus of the grant each year, but this year, Nau is dedicating it to those who move in the spirit of the Nau Collective. Nominees consist of:
- ATHLETES who are challenging assumptions about what it means to move through the world.
- ARTISTS, designers or other creatives who are moved to design better solutions to the world’s greatest problems.
- ACTIVISTS who are seeding positive change in their communities, and moving others to do the same.
