Global Teacher Prize
Regarded by many as the “Nobel Prize for Teaching”, Global Teacher Prize is a project that rewards teachers for excellence in education. In Portugal the competition is on its 4th edition, with the support of Galp Foundation, and once again distinguishes the Portuguese teacher elected as the best of the year with a prize of 30 thousand euros.
Galp Foundation believes that investing in education and bringing the theme to the agenda is to invest in a more sustainable future. In this sense, one of the ways is to value the role of teachers in society, because they are the ones who have the mission of transforming and impacting the lives of young people.
Since education is a central axis in the sustainability strategy of Galp and its Foundation, we embraced this partnership with the Global Teacher Prize from the first moment.

3rd Edition (2020)
In 2020, in the 3rd edition of the Global Teacher Prize, 125 applications were received from teachers from all over the national territory and from all levels of education.
The time has come to recognise the merit of the teachers who reached the final stage of this edition and of all those who are builduing the future with their students and their community, for the good of all.
We are sure that education has the power to move the world. So, it is crucial that we continue to encourage those who teach future generations, with competence and dedication, especially in the present context, full of challenges. As a way of recognising their contribution to a better world, Galp joined its Foundation and offered 100% renewable electricity.
We want to be together, every day, so that energy doesn’t stop.
