The LUSH Spring Prize

An £200,000 prize fund and other support activities, to build capacity for those repairing the earth’s damaged systems.


Rather than reducing impacts and maintaining the earth’s damaged systems, the LUSH Spring Prize showcases work that seeks to heal and grow; taking a holistic approach to overcoming environmental, social and economic challenges.

People all over the world are developing ways to live in harmony with nature and each other. They are generating renewable resources, restoring ecosystems, nurturing solidarity and building health, wholeness and resilience.

The Lush Spring Prize is here to support this regeneration movement through:

  • A biennial £200,000 prize fund. This is open to communities, organisations and businesses from the Intentional stage, through to Young and Established organisations, and Influencers.
  • Events that bring people together to share their skills and experience.
  • Publicity to raise awareness of regeneration and its potential to heal damaged systems.

Find out more about the Prize, its purpose, and who is behind it.

For the 2021 Prize we received hundreds of nominations from around the world, which have been narrowed down to a shortlist of exceptional projects and organisations.

The winners will be announced in October. Our diverse panel of judges comes from a wide spectrum of movements representing regenerative design, permaculture, food sovereignty, transition, biomimicry and eco-village networks.

For 2021 we also have two additional exploratory awards, the Ancient and Indigenous Wisdom Award and the Youth in Permaculture Prize.
