Student innovators are being invited to submit their ideas to be crowned the next green entrepreneur.

London Mayor Boris Johnson has launched the 2016 Low Carbon Entrepreneur Award to find fresh new ideas to cut carbon emissions and provide them with employability skills.

It is open to current students and recent graduates from universities and colleges in London.

The winner will bag a prize of £20,000 to bring their idea to market as well as a paid internship with global banking group Citi, which is sponsoring the award.

Training will be provided for entrants to improve presentation skills and finalists will get guidance for future career decisions.

Mr Johnson said: “Our green economy is booming and I want the next generation of low carbon entrepreneurs to help make London the greenest, most sustainable innovative city on earth.”
