People’s £50 million Contest

Some of you may have seen that there is a competition run by the National Lottery, the Big Lottery Fund’s People’s £50 million Contest, which will be decided by a public vote in the UK. Tim Smit, the Founder of the Eden Project, who we have enjoyed working with a lot on the Africa Calling Live 8 event, asked me to get involved with some brainstorming on the ‘Edge’, which is what he has called his project. I think they have a lot of cool ideas and some interesting people attached, and it strikes me as the boldest and most far reaching of all the four candidates involved.

Without wishing to prejudice the voting, I would ask that anyone interested check out all four propositions and vote for their favourite to make sure the voting is representative.

Thank you very much.
