Lush and Ethical Consumer Research Association are inviting nominations for the Lush Spring Prize – a £200,000 annual prize fund that aims to support projects around the world working towards environmental and social regeneration.
Regeneration is key to moving livelihoods and economies beyond the sustainable and to revive damaged environments by putting back more than what's taken out.
The Lush Spring Prize aims to support a shift towards doing things differently – affording more people 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 between one and five years old that are seeking to grow.
Established Projects (£50,000). Projects that are demonstrating success and withstanding the test of time
Influence Award (£25,000). Projects that are lobbying or campaigning to influence policy or public opinion in support of regeneration.
Nomination forms are available to download from the Lush Spring Prize website (www.springprize.org) and entries close on 28 February 2017. A diverse panel of judges will meet in March and winners will be awarded their prizes at a high-profile event in May 2017.
Nominations are welcomed from anywhere in the world.
