2023 Awards ceremony
Apply for 2024
Developing skills and training for sustainable land management
Award prize: £10,000
Supported by: Garfield Weston Foundation
Smarter ways of managing land can help us grow food sustainably, boost ecosystem restoration and protect biodiversity. But this will only happen if people have the skills to put regenerative approaches into action.
The Ashden Award for Skills in Sustainable Land Management will boost colleges, charities, businesses and others driving alternatives to extractive farming, waterways management and land use in the UK. Systems that restore ecosystems, instead of damaging them. The winner will need to show the impact of their work, both on learners and the climate.
Changes to land use could deliver up to 30% of emissions reductions needed for the UK’s 2050 net zero target. Skills trailblazers can make this ambition a reality, while helping people access jobs and opportunities.
