What can you do with £1000? This is the question the awareness raising organisation Anti-Apathy (Worn Again) is asking the good people of the UK this month. They have launched the Fix World Feel Good Awards which gives out grants of £1000 each to people, "Who can show that a small amount of money can be used to make a difference." Today the winners of the first batch of prizes will be announced and from November one grant will be given out each month until March 2008.
Anti-Apathy are working together with UnLtd*, The Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs, to help people get their great ideas off the ground. Anti-Apathy say, "We are looking for ideas that fit with our ‘world-saving made simple’ online creation, The Nag. Themes from the project include energy, fashion, water, flying and food. What's the problem and how do you aim to fix it? Projects must be environmentally-focussed while also having a positive social impact. Applications will be judged on originality, motivation, achievability and impact." Get those green thinking caps on! :: Anti-Apathy :: The Nag
