GDA Natural Energy Award.png

In a world dominated by batteries and electricity, the NATURAL ENERGY AWARD lets us celebrate the elegance of tools and gadgets fueled by natural energy. The award is hugely important because it unites the physical world with us as people, bringing us really into contact with our own humanity. Because we are all so dominated by reducing our reliance on fuel and generated power, we have forgotten our own natural abilities. Now is the chance to put our human power back on the map!

Examples of Natural Energy are so obvious, that they really become thought provoking. Binoculars capture and magnify natural light, while bicycles offer eco-friendly, human-powered mobility. In the kitchen, manual utensils like tin openers and hand-cranked egg beaters highlight simplicity and creativity. Thermometers need no external force and your toilet cistern works simply by water.

Hand tools connect us to craftsmanship, using our strength and skill to shape materials. These devices showcase the beauty and sustainability of natural energy, a testament to human ingenuity and a closer connection to our environment.

The deadline for the NATURAL ENERGY AWARD is the 20th of May 2024 at 20.00 UTC - Coordinated Universal Time
