Prize money of £25,000 for climate activists winning the Ashden Awards

The Ashden Awards aim to bring climate change activists into the spotlight to accelerate the transmission of transformative climate solutions. 


  • Winning an Ashden Award brings a prize of up to £25,000 as well as ongoing development support.
  • We put winners in front of funders, investors, policymakers, journalists, and others who know the unique value of an Ashden Award and the strength of our rigorous assessment process.
  • We create promotional films about your winners’ work and tell their stories in mainstream and specialist media, and through our growing digital channels. We’ve helped previous winners gain coverage at Sky News, The Telegraph, Times of India, Al Jazeera, New Scientist , and other leading platforms.
  • Award winners’, views, needs, and insights are at the heart of our influential reports, toolkits, and events – which shape the views of key climate decision-makers.   
  • All winners join the Ashden network – giving them the chance to connect with new partners through masterclasses, investor pitching events, and introductions to influential policymakers.

  • Businesses, NGOs, government organisations, social enterprises, and community groups are all eligible. Work must be currently available to clients, customers or beneficiaries.  
  • The work submitted for an award should be innovative. It might feature new technology, new approaches to marketing and distribution, or a new way of sharing training and skills. It might involve improved financing mechanisms or an innovative business model.  
  • Work should also have the potential to create a significant impact. This impact might be a large drop in greenhouse gas emissions, raised incomes, better health, reduced inequality, or a combination of positive outcomes. The impact might be achieved by the growth of the organisation applying, or by the spread of their ideas to other organisations.  
  • Initiatives should boost resilience and be as participatory and democratic as possible – designed and run with input from the people they support, particularly marginalised groups. Applicants should also show good governance and management.
