Britain’s 50 New Radicals: Entries now open for 2014 list
Who are the people and organisations changing society for the better? Britain’s 50 New Radicals is back!
In 2012, Nesta and The Observer presented a list of social entrepreneurs and innovators using their technical expertise, community influence, scientific prowess and artistic bravery for social good.
We’ve now joined forces once more to find the next generation of radicals working in the UK today. Britain’s 50 New Radicals 2014 is looking for inspirational people, initiatives and organisations from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland working hard to tackle society’s biggest challenges.
This year we’re splitting the list into ten different categories:
- Community action
- Employment / jobs
- Media, architecture and the arts
- Science and technology
- Organisations of all sizes will be considered ranging from one-man-bands to established companies. However, the project, initiative or company must have been going for at least six months and not in operation before May 2010.
- Entries must be able to demonstrate evidence of success and sustainability.
- You can enter Britain’s 50 Radicals yourself or nominate another person or organisation to be considered for the list.
- All entries must be based in the UK and not be primarily motivated by profit.
We’re accepting entries between now and 11.59pm 16 June 2014. Our panel of judges, led by Geoff Mulgan and The Observer’s John Mulholland and Yvonne Roberts, will then decide who makes it through to the final list of 50, announced in September.
