Meet the people and organisations who we think are changing Britain for the better.

In partnership with The Observer, and using an expert panel of judges, we looked for anyone applying fresh approaches in practical and scalable ways, through social, technological, scientific and artistic methods.

We hope that the list we've presented here will offer some much deserved recognition to some remarkable people and organisations.

We also hope it will inspire, motivate and provoke others to innovate and build on the ideas presented.
