As part of the "What's Your Issue?" initiative, 19-year old Ximena Prugue from Miami, USA, was presented with the Young Entrepreneur Award for her project "Giving the Green Light". "What's Your Issue?" is a US non-profit project and a global youth initiative and competition that nurtures the next generation of leaders and social entrepreneurs. The movie entry "Giving the Green Light" highlighted an issue being faced by millions of people who inhale kerosene-contaminated air on a daily basis (for example, through using kerosene lamps) and who are thus seriously at risk of developing lung cancer. In parallel, the movie also presented a solution to the problem, namely by replacing kerosene lamps with solar-powered torches. Further information can be found at
