Our Responsible Leaders Network encompasses well over 2,000 Responsible Leaders, whose work and engagement contribute to a just, peaceful, and sustainable future.

The BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Awards seek to honor their personal commitment as well as the positive social impact of their projects. All members of our Network can apply for the award. In addition to a prize money, the Foundation also provides long-term support and assistance to the winning initiatives. The award also helps establish contacts with other Responsible Leaders and their partners who can help these projects grow and scale.

Previous winners of the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Awards include Gonzalo Munoz, whose company Triciclos is establishing recycling points run by former waste-pickers across Latin America, and Shahira Amin, founder of a network for women journalists in Egypt.
