Sustainable Development Challenge Fund (Green Dragon's Den at Hay Festival)

The Sustainable Development Challenge Fund (Green Dragons Den at the Hay Festival) is intended to encourage organisations in Wales to undertake projects that demonstrate "leadership, innovation and more than a little flair".
The sponsor is looking for projects that demonstrate one or more of the following elements:
  • Introduce and prove new concepts that increase sustainability action.
  • Link projects, organisations and solutions in more effective ways.
  • Make inspired use of seed funding.
Funded projects should fall under one of the following categories:
  • The Power of Youth – Under 25s.
  • Innovation for Sustainability.
  • Sustainable Work & Travel.
  • Sustainable Community Futures.
Finalists in each category will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of experts and an invited audience, with each category winner receiving a £10,000 prize to carry out their projects.
Any organisation in Wales (businesses, community groups and social enterprises) may submit ideas for a project, which should be a new and innovative approach to sustainable development.

The deadline for applications is 8 May 2012.
