The 2021 KidsRights International Children's Peace Prize has been awarded to two Indian teenage brothers for their efforts to combat pollution caused by household waste. The award was presented to them by Kailash Satyarthi, Indian Nobel Peace laureate, at a Dutch-based KidsRights foundation ceremony in The Hague, Netherlands.

Vihaan (17) and Nav Agarwal (14) created the "One Step Greener" programme, which involves sorting recyclables and coordinating garbage pickups from thousands of houses.
