The LUSH Spring Prize

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


Rather than simply reducing impacts and sustaining 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.

About the Lush Spring Prize

People all over the world are developing ways to live in harmony with nature and each other. They are resisting further damage, restoring ecosystems, generating renewable resources, 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. We are currently closed for entries but plan to reopen in July 2020.
  • 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.
