| 6th January 2017
The Lush Spring Prize aims to support a shift towards doing things differently by affording more people both the resources and the opportunity to do so
Nominations have opened for the new Lush Spring Prize. Launched jointly with the Ethical Consumer Research Association this is a new and very welcome £200,000 annual prize fund that aims to support those projects around the world that work towards environmental and social regeneration.
The new Influence Award will go to someone who has lobbied or campaigned to influence policy or public opinion in support of regeneration

Regeneration is key to moving livelihoods and economies towards a more sustainable future and to reviving damaged environments by putting back more than what's taken out.

The Lush Spring Prize aims to support a shift towards doing things differently by affording more people both the resources and the opportunity to do so.

The Lush Spring Prize will award funds annually to those who are engaging in the process of regeneration in the following four categories:

  • Intentional Projects (£50,000) ... backing for great ideas in the early stages

 

  • Young Projects (£75,000) ... projects 1- 5 years old seeking to grow

 

  • Established Projects (£50,000) ... beacons demonstrating success and withstanding the test of time

 

  • Influence Award (£25,000) ... lobbying or campaigning to influence policy or public opinion in support of regeneration.
