Financial Times And Citi Name Finalists For 2013 FT/Citi Ingenuity Awards

The project has helped rejuvenate the area by uniting residents into one global neighbourhood.


BlaBlaCar, based in Paris, allows drivers with empty seats in their vehicles to connect with passengers and share intercity journeys. Drivers utilise the website and mobile app to publish a planned journey. Passengers can then search available offers, and contact the driver of their choice.

BlaBlaCar provides a range of features to create a secure, reliable, trust-based community and easy connections between drivers and passengers. Members rate one another after travelling together, allowing them to build reputations in the community.

By enabling over 600,000 people a month in ten countries across Europe to share intercity journeys, BlaBlaCar is increasing the efficiency of road transport, and reducing its environmental impact.

Trees for Cities

Edible Playgrounds, a program organised by London-based charity Trees for Cities, engages children in inner-city schools in gardening activities centered on the positive aspects of fresh food. Growing fruit and vegetables in school yards and playgrounds not only introduces underprivileged children to the delights of nature but raises their awareness and understanding of the link between nature and what constitutes a healthy diet.

Edible Playgrounds also facilitates and empowers local communities to transform their outdoor spaces by delivering green-skills workshops and training sessions to school children, youth groups and adults.

Edible Playgrounds offers a potential long-term solution to food poverty in the UK while also educating people to lead a healthy lifestyle from a young age.



Aprenda, a unit of Peruvian micro-lender Grupo ACP, has developed an educational program for low-income women in urban areas who have the ideas and aspiration to run their own small businesses, but lack the financial skills and formal education to achieve their dreams and contribute positively to their family and community.
