Categories for Entry

1. New idea:

The New Ideas category is for anyone without an established business or initiative, but with a good idea that is viable, innovative and aimed at solving real sustainability challenges that would help Stellenbosch become a more sustainable place to live, study and work.

2. Existing Business/Initiatives:

This category is for organisations providing integrated solutions for a more sustainable Stellenbosch and to improve the local quality of life in Stellenbosch. These businesses or initiatives can be formal or informal, and for- or non-profit - however, they must be revenue-generating, have the potential to become self-sustaining entities, and should not be donor-dependent or a limited-timeframe project.
