The DOEN Foundation believes that it is possible to achieve a green, socially inclusive and creative society. We are seeing many people using entrepreneurship to actively work towards innovative solutions for a better world. They are at the forefront; they dare to take risks and they bring about change. They break through old structures and create new perspectives on existing problems. These pioneers are also a source of inspiration for others. DOEN’s role is to support these pioneers in the very first phase in order to give initiatives a flying start, and thereby stimulate innovation. Where possible, DOEN subsequently transfers the initiatives to other parties to increase their impact.
