What does the Lush Spring Prize have to do with regeneration?
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. They are bringing life back to damaged land and oceans.
The Lush Spring Prize is here to support these regeneration movements.
Regeneration can mean a lot of different things to different people. By regeneration we mean systems and practices that take a ‘holistic’ approach to solving environmental, social and economic problems; aiming to restore health, wholeness and resilience.
The Lush Spring Prize looks for projects that are actively contributing to the health of all the systems they are part of.
As well as helping to restore the natural systems in the place the project is based, projects should be nurturing the wellbeing of all their workers, the capacity of the community around them, and the networks they are connected to.
The Lush Spring Prize seeks projects that are aware of the challenges they face, that are building the capacity of their own organisation to address these challenges, improve and evolve.
Finally, projects should be sharing their experience so that others can learn from their work, adapt the knowledge to their own situations in doing so, support the wider regenerative movement.
