Nudge Global Impact Award 2018

Nudge Global Impact Award 2018

The Award for impact created by the Nudge Global Impact Challenge participants

Nudge realises the worldwide impact our alumni have created. Their leadership in sustainability is showing in the execution of their impact plans and they have demonstrated to be true agents of change. Therefore, Nudge not only offers a Prize to the 3 winners of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge; we also want to offer an Award to the alumni who have generated the most impact with their impact plans.

Impact Plan

During the Nudge Global Impact Challenge participants create and improve their personal sustainability impact plans: a plan that sets out the possible change towards a more sustainable orientation for the participants’ companies, organisations, universities and communities. Participants of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2018 are now working on their impact plans.

VU University of Amsterdam

The execution of the participants’ impact plans will be measured and monitored using the evaluation framework created by the VU University in Amsterdam, strategic partner of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge. At VU University Amsterdam, Prof. Dr. Philipp Pattberg heads the Department of Environmental Policy Analysis (Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences); a team of more than 25 researchers that was evaluated in a 2014 international review as ‘world leading’ and as being ‘one of the highest profile academic research groups involved with sustainability governance from around the world’. We are proud that Prof. Dr. Pattberg and his team have designed the evaluation framework for the Nudge Global Impact Award.

90 Nominees ⇒

All participants of the 2017 Nudge Global Impact Challenge have been nominated for the Nudge Global Impact Award 2018. The evaluation framework that Prof. Dr. Philipp Pattberg and his team have created allows our alumni to show the impact their impact plans have generated.

6 Finalists ⇒

Based on the Total Impact scores, 6 finalists will be selected. They will be invited to join the Nudge Summit 2018, the second evening of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge, to present the impact that they have made with their Impact Plan.

3 Criteria ⇒

Based on the answers from our alumni to multiple questions, three scores are assigned to each impact plan: direct impact, outcome impact and project management. These are all weighted and combined into a Total Impact Score.
