Do you have a brilliant idea for transforming a communal space near you? Do you want to get together with others for some wild sowing and planting action?

Young people aged 12 to 25 can apply for a Transform a Space award.

We’re looking for project ideas that raise awareness about the importance of native wild flowers and plants and their diverse habitats. Your project can involve more than sowing and growing – as long as it communicates a message about UK native wild flowers in a creative way. Think wild, innovative and eye catching!

Grow Wild is working together with the British Youth Council, Scottish Youth Parliament, Youth Cymru and Northern Ireland Youth Forum, and a youth panel will be assessing the applications from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

To apply for this award you must be known to an educational institute or youth / community / voluntary / organisation that can receive the £500 award on your behalf. Please download the guidance for supporting organisations and talk to someone about your project idea.

The deadline for applications is 22 February 2016. Successful applications will be notified by mid-March and will need to complete their project by mid-September 2016.
