The Buckminster Fuller Institute has an annual Buckminster Fuller Challenge, a $100,000 prize for “comprehensive solutions that radically advance human well-being and ecosystem health.” The 2008 prize was awarded in June, in NYC. Check out their Challenge webpage for a list of submissions and winners. The 2009 Challenge will begin this fall.
