Testimonials from some Alumni

James Thuch Madhier: From Canada/South Sudan took part in the Nudge Global Impact Challenge as a Wild Card participant in 2015. James changed the direction of his impact plan during the learning experience of the Challenge. His focus, however, remained on creating a business environment that enables our planet to endure and renew itself. In 2017, formed from his impact plan, James founded The Rainmaker Enterprise, a non-profit social enterprise that transforms lives in conflict-affected regions through solar-powered water infrastructure for food-secure, stable, and self-sufficient communities.

Juliette Schraauwers: From the Netherlands participated in the Challenge in 2018. She is also in the process of building a small sustainable home. Her impact Plan titled Education for Sustainability / NOW school resulted in a working relationship with Brand it Forward, she is also the founder of NOW school. With education for sustainability at its core, NOW school aims to empower children of today to be the change-makers of tomorrow. The school is situated in Utrecht and aims to open its doors for the first time in September 2020, making her impact plan a reality.

Nguyễn Hữu Hoàng: From Vietnam, Nguyễn participated in the Challenge 2017 as a young professional from Heineken Vietnam where he is a Public Affairs Executive.

His impact Plan, Recycle Crown Cork to Support Communities was accomplished when instead of creating iron roofs, the bottle caps were instead used to build a bridge which connects Tam Hiep Commune, Tan Ly Dong Commune of Chau Thanh district, and Tan Lap 1 of Tan Phuoc district, making the commute between the two communities much easier for the local population. The bridge consists of more than 520,000 Tiger Beer bottle caps and has developed into a campaign that will now spread across Vietnam, with more bridges being built nation-wide.

Daniel Harris: From the United Kingdom was a Challenge participant in 2016 and in 2018, he founded his own social enterprise, Nourish Our World (NOW).

His impact plan titled Climate Leadership Programme aimed to organize a one-week interdisciplinary and interactive program for both practitioners and research students to discuss the challenges of – and potential solutions to – the complex and global problem of climate change.

It became actualized when Daniel has maintained his focus on education but has changed his target group from practitioners and research students to secondary school students. At Nourish Our World, to demonstrate the interconnectedness of climate change with the food system and inspire action, they co-create edible gardens and facilitate interactive workshops about food security with young people in secondary schools.

Marta Mazza: From Italy participated in the Challenge in 2017. She was also one of three recipients of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge Award 2018. Marta is currently working on the project ‘Dream Warriors: True Stories of Children and Teenagers who Are Changing the World’ – a book of 12 extraordinary stories on the topics of sustainability.
