Guys, we are short of words! Today, the Impact Week got awarded by the German Initiative "Germany – Land of Ideas" as one of the "Excellent Places in the Land of Ideas" 2018. It is great to see that not only we recognize our organizations potential and of the impact it is having but that our enthusiasm is contagious.
„I am incredibly proud! We've done a great job with the Impact Week in recent years. Without any single volunteer supporting the Impact Week mission, without our partners and sponsors, past projects would not have been possible. And that's just the beginning – in the coming months, our teams will be sent to Rwanda, Nigeria, India and Colombia to expand our network and deliver a long-term impact.“
Michael Hübl, Co-Founder of the Impact Week
“In the Impact Weeks, innovators from different sectors and companies come together around the world to develop ideas and business models for local social challenges with local partners. All contributors are ambassadors and bridge builders between people and cultures. This unites us in all diversity!”
