10 Awards for Social Engagement

On November 30, 2018, the Jacobs Foundation bestowed 10 awards to social innovators and change makers in the field of child and youth development. Each award will come with an amount of CHF 100’000. The recipients provide solutions for positive child and youth development at low cost, which are sustainable and can be easily implemented on the spot. What the ten awardees have in common is their wish for social change and their restless personal social engagement.
They are beyond talking – they act.
