The NatureTech.Solutions Award was created in response to a grant to Bruce Potter from Island Resources Foundation, on the sunsetting of the Foundation in June, 2016. Using that core funding, we have recruited an Advisory Committee and created a Fund at the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands to make awards to stimulate innovation in resource management in small islands of the Caribbean.

The first NatureTech.Solutions Award of a certificate and a check for US$3,000 will be made sometime in the 4th quarter of 2017. In the meantime, the Rules page will provide our current thinking about the judging criteria that will be used by the Advisory Committee to make the Award.
