The Georges Anawati Foundation invited me to serve as a member of the Selection Committee for the Anawati Innovation Award 2017. The foundation that was founded in 2000 aims to promote the encounter of people from Christian and Muslim cultures in Germany while supporting initiatives that sustainably intensify interreligious and intercultural dialogue and promote mutual respect and understanding.
With the new project “Anawati Innovation Award”, the foundation would like to support social innovation with the concept of seed-funding. In a one-year funding program, the award winner receives financial support running for 12 months, has access to leadership training and is advised by experts.
