The SEED Awards for Entrepreneurs in Sustainable Development is an annual awards scheme designed to find the most promising, innovative and locally led start-up social and environmental entrepreneurs in countries with developing and emerging economies.
An international jury of experts selects enterprises which have the potential to make real improvements in poverty eradication and environmental sustainability while contributing to a greener economy.
Businesses using the FairWild Standard to guide their sustainable harvest and fair trade of wild plant ingredients, or making plans to introduce the FairWild principles to their operations, may find the SEED Award scheme a potential source of financial and technical support.
For more details and to check the eligibility criteria for the award scheme, see the SEED Initiative website.
Deadline for applications: 08 April 2014 - 23:59 CET
