Participation in the "GET ACTIVE Social Business Award" initiative

The world does not change on its own: GET ACTIVE!

If you want to make a difference, you have to take action - this is the motto of the annual GET ACTIVE Social Business Award, which calls for submissions of projects or project ideas.

In 2023, the founders of the initiative - Coca-Cola, Der Standard and the NPO and SE Competence Center of the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration (WU Wien) as well as the media partner 4Gamechangers - are calling for the 16th time to become socially entrepreneurially active.

Almost anyone can participate: companies, non-profit organisations, groups of committed people and ambitious individuals. In the course of the competition, the ideas must be developed in the form of a business plan ready for implementation. Based on this plan, a decision-making body selects the most worthy projects in the field of social entrepreneurship with the help of clearly defined assessment criteria, which are then supported with a substantial financial injection.

The NPO & SE Competence Center is responsible for the pre-selection of the submitted projects, is represented in the jury and carries out the accompanying evaluation of the winning projects.

Sindbad GASBA Gewinner 2020

In November 2022, the winning project of the GASBA 2022 was selected at the finals: the winner was "movevo4kids" with their digital platform for daily physical activity sessions for children in schools. Since, according to the WHO, 8 out of 10 children move less than one hour per day and overweight and obesity are also on the rise among children, there must be innovations to get children moving. This is exactly where the project comes in and invites the children to a so-called "movement treasure hunt" that extends over the school year.

The NPO Competence Center will evaluate this project in the course of 2023.
