Youth in Permaculture Prize 2019
The Abundant Earth Foundation, in partnership with Permaculture Magazine, is proud to announce call for applications for 2019’s Youth in Permaculture Prize.
Young permaculturists, 25 years old and under, who are spearheading projects based on eco-friendly agricultural practices or efforts to improve the social fabric of their community are invited to apply. A total of £5,000 (GBP) in awards will be given ($6,630 (USD)).
Youth are truly the future of our planet. In order to recognise and honour their talent and intelligence, this world-wide prize will spotlight young leaders who are dedicating their time to make the world a better place and create a future that provides for all.
With so much at stake regarding climate change, economic disparity, and loss of species, today’s youth are motivated to do what they can to change the destructive path the world is on. Moreover, adults have much to learn from them and many ways to support their efforts. This prize is designed to share stories, solutions, and methods we can all participate in, steering a new course for the future, while allowing the youth to lead the way.
Projects which have a potential to “go viral,” with a multiplying effect, that can easily be replicated by others are of special interest. Real-world application of Permaculture Ethics and Principles will be considered in the evaluation of the applicants. Care for the Planet, People, and the Future are the Ethics and foundation of permaculture.
An international panel of young judges will choose projects based on the impact they will have on the environment, providing food, offering solutions to economic or social problems, or other means of creating a better future.
