The Nudge Global Impact Awards

The Nudge Global Impact Awards

Awarded to the Challenge participants who created the biggest impact

We want to put the focus on the global impact that our alumni created. They prove they are true leaders in sustainability by successfully implementing their Sustainability Impact Plans. Through the Nudge Global Impact Awards we congratulate the alumni who managed to create the biggest impact with their plans.

Impact Plan

During the Nudge Global Impact Challenge, each participant creates and improves his or her own sustainability impact plan – a plan with focus on environmental and/or social impact. The ultimate purpose is to implement this plan in the participant’s company, organisation, university, or community. The participants of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2020 are now working on the realisation of their impact plans.

All participants of the 2020 Challenge have been nominated for the Nudge Global Impact Awards. To measure, monitor and evaluate the impact realised by the Challenge participants, our strategic partner, the VU Amsterdam, designed an evaluation framework. Prof. Dr. Philipp Pattberg (Head of the Environmental Policy Analysis Department at the Institute for Environmental Studies) and his team are responsible for this unique measuring method. Based on the Total Impact scores, 6 finalists were be selected. They were invited to join the online Nudge Global Impact Awards ceremony on 22 June 2021 to present the impact they have made with their plan.

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. During the Awards ceremony, the jury chose 3 Winners. Their prize will be an amount of money to be used on a cause of public benefit connected to their impact project.
