The Awards accelerate innovative initiatives in the field of humanitarian and development work
The Spindle invites you to join The Awards 2018! As an innovation platform, we promote innovative initiatives that are focused on creating a fairer, more inclusive, sustainable world. This year we honour awards in four categories: Best Innovation for Development, Best Humanitarian Innovation, the NOW-Us! (NOthing about us, Without Us) Award and The Summer Labs / Best Idea for Development. The best participants of each category will present their initiative during the Partos Innovation Festival on October 11th, 2018 – and run for prize money, coaching and the undivided attention of the Dutch NGO-sector, potential investors and donors.
