The “Trag” Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation and Erste Bank issued a call for participating in the National Green Ideas Forum.

In partnership with the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation and ERSTE Bank, the Trag Foundation seeks creative and innovative ideas for organizing and jointly solving social problems, relying on community resources, while preserving the environment.  

The call is aimed at formally teamed up citizens, not individuals, and is intended for citizen associations, foundations, endowments, cooperatives and companies that plan to become solid entrepreneurs or beginners in solidarity entrepreneurship, which bring their exploitation of resources, investment management, technological development and institutional changes in line with the future, and not only with their current needs.  

The program supports the sustainable development of those who are preparing themselves to become solid entrepreneurs or beginners in solidarity entrepreneurship.   

The ideas will be selected in accordance with the following criteria: general impression, social mission, business activity, the attitude towards the environment and financial projection.
