There is a £200,000 prize fund to support projects around the world working on environmental and social regeneration.
The different prize categories range from the Ideas stage, through to Young and Established organisations, as well as an Influence Award, aimed at campaigns to influence policy or public opinion towards a more regenerative society.
After the prize-giving event in May 2017, we will be launching an additional ‘incubator’ fund, to support a wider range of initiatives for environmental and social regeneration.
We received over 450 nominations for 2017, and 52 projects and organisations have been short-listed. See Prize pages for details.
Judging takes place in March and April, and the winners announced in May.
Our diverse panel of judges – see their profiles here – come from a wide spectrum of movements representing regenerative design, permaculture, food sovereignty, transition, biomimicry and eco-village networks.
We have aimed for a variety of ages, a gender mix, and representatives from around the world.
