2017: a global sustainability project

Nudge is proud to announce that Ferrero is the official reward partner of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2017. Together with Nudge the three winners will travel to Georgia (Eurasia) in May 2018 to help Ferrero solve a business question in sustainability. 


2016: another life-changing project

The winners of the 2016 Challenge traveled to Kenya in February 2017 to take part in the MasterPeace Walk. They worked together with the Maasai exploring water supply solutions

MasterPeace is an award-winning global grassroots non-profit and non-governmental peace movement, currently existing in more than 40 countries around the world.

MasterPeace was launched in 2011, with the aim to mobilize people around the world to use their talent and energy for peace building and togetherness. Through music, sports, arts and dialogue, MasterPeace will help lead the way to a more sustainable world with less (armed) conflict.

MasterPeace focuses on actively engaging people around the world in peace-building actions. The world has seven billion inhabitants. They view them as seven billion sources of talent and energy. To achieve all that, MasterPeace offers a platform for a large community of Nelsons; social entrepreneurs, volunteers, bloggers, journalists, media, musicians, businesses and active citizens to connect together and support with actions.

By 2013, MasterPeace was awarded by the Secretary General of the United Nations Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the ‘innovation in peace building’ award on behalf of the United Nations Correspondents Association (UNCA).

The three winners used their creativity and leadership to tackle the lack of safe drinking water, and to come up with the most sustainable solution for safe water supplies.
