We are looking for Changemakers! - Who will be the new member of the Hungarian Ashoka Network in 2022?
The constant change and rapid transformation that characterizes both our immediate environment and our world is no longer a novelty today. We all have experience, we all feel it one way or another, we can hear and read a lot about it, but in most cases not about the positive changes, but rather about the irreversible domino effects of events that lead to unstoppable, unsolvable, random chaos.
Since the founding of Ashoka, it has believed in consciously shaping change and embracing its power. It puts the person at the center and has a concrete idea of the direction of change.
The direction of change is the realization of social value creation in any area of life, in which a person aiming to consciously shape change, the social entrepreneur, sees a real and existing social problem to be solved.
We consider the creation of an international network and a common knowledge base of leading social entrepreneurs, selected by Ashoka, to be the engine of change and one of our main tasks.
We find and support social entrepreneurs who work effectively on the social problems they target with a tangible and new solution.
By becoming a member, we initially provide financial support and a lifetime membership to Ashoka’s international network, enabling them to realize their ideas and make an even greater impact in their field.
New members are selected through an evaluation system that has been proven, evolved and refined over the past 35+ years through the selection and collaboration of nearly 3,800 leading social entrepreneurs.
There are five main aspects to select our new social entrepreneur:
the novelty of their idea,
a testament to their creativity
real entrepreneurial behavior and attitude
the systemic social impact of the idea
stable ethical position, ethical approach to life.
