Berlin, May 18, 2012: The highlight of this year’s Vision Summit yesterday evening was the annual presentation of the Vision Award. This award honours outstanding international social innovation which provides answers to the urgent questions of our times. “Social innovators” are defined as people who have shown innovative spirit, entrepreneurship and perseverance in taking up key social and ecological challenges with the development of new and effective ideas. A particularly important aspect of this award is that the ideas must be capable of long-term independent financial sustainability. The AfB may be considered a prime example of successful social entrepreneurship.
