Intentional Award

For great ideas and projects up to 1 year old.

This prize is for individuals, communities, aspiring businesses or newly formed groups and organisations to help establish a strong foundation from which to grow.

Knowledge sharing, training and strategy development are ways in which we would hope for this money to be used. We are also open to other suggestions if they will help make an idea a reality.

There are at least four prizes in this category, with each being awarded up to £10,000. We aim to award one prize to a small scale project in this category.


Nominations for the 2023 Prize are now closed.

A shortlist will be announced in January, and the winners will be announced in May.

Our diverse panel of judges comes from a wide spectrum of movements representing regenerative design, permaculture, food sovereignty, transition, biomimicry and eco-village networks.
