Last call for Hay on Earth

Here's a short update on the events running at Hay on Earth this year - the deadline for applications is 12.00 on 24 May, so organisations in Wales that want to be considered for the sustainability innovation funding from the Welsh Assembly's SD Challenge need to get writing.

SD Challenge: the Welsh Assembly have a funding pot of £40,000 that's going to be split equally between four projects in a 'Green Dragon's Den' event that will be running on 1-4 June at Hay on Earth, with themes over the four days on Low Carbon Travel, Food & Sustainability, Business & Enterprise, and Communities & Homes. Short-listed projects will work with a team of specialists during the first half of each day to sharpen their ideas before pitching those ideas to members of the public in the afternoon as dry run before a three minute pitch to the 'Dragons' at close of play. The short application form can be found here and needs to be submitted by 12.00 on 24/5/10

Setting the real goals for change + Marketplace for Innovation: Free workshops/ seminars will run on each day 1-4 June with discussion and detailed description of the real goals that we need to work towards to achieve a sustainable future. What will businesses actually need to be doing by when to achieve reduction of their carbon emissions? What will social enterprises be doing to make change? What capability would 80% of children leave school with if they were to play a part in changing the world for sustainability. We're making the shift from goals that improve on yesterday to those that are needed for tomorrow. Information on the workshops can be found here; please email Andy Middleton to register a place on one or more of the days.

Green Heroes: As part of each day's attraction, Cynnal Cymru's Green Heroes 2009 exhibition will be on display to share inspiration from last year's winners and gather entries for the 2010 awards.

Do Lectures: for those who appreciate a dose of the finest inspiration on the planet, grab one of the last 20 or so tickets to the 2010 Do Lectures, held in north Pembrokeshire in mid September.

We're really excited to be making a submission for the SD Challenge this year. Just wondering if you can tell us who the dragons are, I believe that this was announced on the 16th of april but I haven't been able to find the list of names.
