Do you know an organisation active whose commitment, positive attitude or incredible innovativeness you admire? Now you have a chance to let us know who you think should earn the title of organisation hero in order for them to get recognition for their efforts! You can nominate the organisational hero by yourselves or as a group, for example as an organisation.

You can nominate an organisation hero by filling in the ‘Organisation heroes 2020’ form. Fill in both the heroes and your own contact information. You can freely describe the reasons for the nomination. Each Hero will be rewarded with a diploma with the description.
