Introducing the Hildur Jackson Award!

We are delighted to launch the Hildur Jackson Award, a €3,000 annual prize fund that aims to support projects around the world working towards regeneration.

For those of you who have been accompanying GEN for a longer time, you will remember that in the past we presented yearly a Gaia Excellence Award to one or more projects. We have now renamed it after GEN’s beloved late founder Hildur. We warmly welcome you to nominate yourself or others for this year’s award!

Please visit our website for more information about how to apply, the criteria for selection of projects, previous awards…

In short, the Prize is awarded to those who bring the most impactful inspiration about ecovillages / ecovillage lifestyles into a broad audience, in the following categories:

Extraordinary Project (€3,000) – for established ecovillage communities or projects
Exceptional Solution (€3,000) – for concrete sustainability solutions
Nominations are welcomed from anywhere in the world!

If you have any questions or comments, contact Mena Vieira, GEN’s Networking Director:  [email protected]

Please do spread widely in your networks, and we look forward to hear from you.

In Celebration of the Power of Community!

 

Nominations open on September 1st and will close on
October 31st 2017!
