The Nelson Award is a reference to Nelson Mandala, and rewards companies and entrepreneurs who are creating impact in their local communities. It is also a follow up of the Be a Nelson campaign, which is a call to roll up your sleeves, take action and make a difference to those around you. This year the MasterPeace organisation is organising the first edition of the Nelson Award in Utrecht.
Right now the award is in its first phase and looking for nominations. So if you are from Utrecht, and knows an organisation who makes a difference within your community, you can and should nominate it. MasterPeace will gather all nominations, and together with a committee formed by a diverse group of Utrecht residents they will select the finalists. The companies they are looking for should:
- be a commercial company from the region of Utrecht.
- be independent from subsidies.
- have committed several years into making Utrecht more inclusive, connected and socially stronger (does that sounds like a company you know? 😉).
- invested its money and capital responsibly.
