The Ashden Awards

Interests: “Ashden's mission is to accelerate transformative climate solutions and build a more just world. Our awards, events, networks and analysis support climate innovation in the UK and developing countries around the world.” The Ashden Awards are for organisations that deliver sustainability at the local level, in ways that are innovative, scalable, and replicable, and through this bring social, economic, and environmental benefits. Awards open annually in January and close in March. There are three UK awards:

  • Climate innovation
  • Green skills
  • Green Communities

The green communities award is the one most likely to be relevant to churches “The award will recognise an initiative that makes climate action relevant to the everyday lives of citizens and the things they care about, with particular attention on engaging beyond typical ‘green audiences.’ It will seek to reward work that demonstrates how climate action can cut carbon and tackle social issues (such as poor mental or physical health) at the same time. The issues tackled and approaches used could range from highlighting under–represented voices within the climate sector to art projects inspiring communities into action.”
