Our awards recognize the work of individuals and institutions whose initiatives help to improve our society, by providing solutions to real problems. A greater number of nominations are received each year and all of them are a fine example of commitment and generosity, as well as showing that, with a desire for change and dedication, it is possible to improve the world we live in.

The “Policy Incubator” project of the Wharton Risk Management and Decision Processes Center at the University of Pennsylvania, EHAS Foundation for its “Healthy Pregnancy” initiative, the volunteer dentists from Turma do Bem, the Organization of American Firefighters, and Vicente del Bosque González are the winners in this edition. All of them collected their award from Her Majesty Queen Sofia in an emotional ceremony.
