Ashden judges pick this year's shortlist

The Ashden Awards judges have just announced the shortlist of 32 projects for the 2011 Ashden Awards.

This year's international applicants, ranging from Africa, Asia and Latin America, use innovative approaches to tackle poverty and climate change, including creating fuel pellets from waste biomass, solar LED lanterns and small wind turbines.

The UK applicants are spread across the country, from Brighton and Devon to Scotland and Lancashire. These ground-breaking initiatives range from an enterprise using biodiesel for community transport to programmes retrofitting homes and community groups that promote behaviour change.

Take a look at our news page for more details on the projects that tackle poverty and climate change.
