Collaborative Innovations Awards
Each year Partos organises a call for innovation to showcase and promote recent innovative and inspiring initiatives in the development sector. This year, the “Collaborative Innovations Awards” recognise and celebrate innovative collaborations in international civil society partnerships that developed creative solutions to deal with complex, volatile and uncertain scenarios in development cooperation. In total, 30 projects were submitted, covering a wide range of sustainable development goals, innovative approaches, changemakers, target groups, and locations.
Selection Process & Aw-Arts
The Jury, consisting of Suzan Joy, Casper Staat, Dennis van Wanrooij, Tara Rao, and Mouna Ben Garga, was given the task to score these innovations. After careful deliberation and rich discussion, the Jury selected the 10 most inspiring collaborative innovations. These changemakers got the opportunity to showcase their innovation at the Partos Innovation Festival. Out of the 10 nominees, the Jury awarded 3 innovations for the best Collaborative Innovations of 2021. These 3 innovators won a visual narrative artboard by artivists selected by Süd Illustrative Agency about their innovation, and the chance to participate in three exclusive innovation workshops called the ‘FutureLab.’
