Ambea nominated for Årets samhällsentreprenör

Ambea’s project to offer internships, language training and employment for new arrivals in Sweden has once again been nominated for an award. This time by the magazine Dagens Samhälle who awards Årets samhällsentreprenör.

It is the third year in a row that Dagens Samhälle awards creative examples of development and improvement of our common welfare system. Årets samhällsentreprenör is awarded an organization, a company or persons with an idea that provides a solution or part of a solution of a society problem. Three finalists have been selected among the over 30 nominees:

  • Stiftelsen Läxhjälpen, for effective and costless study support for thousands of school pupils in socially problematic areas
  • Ambea, for its internship program for new arrivals
  • Studentvikarie, for their app that solves schools’ need for supply teachers

─ It’s a great honor that our work is being noticed. It will be exciting to see the outcome of the award ceremony, says Nina Thorén Forsanker, responsible for Ambea’s project.

Earlier this year, Ambea was also nominated for Årets samhällsaktör, an award scheme created by commuications agency Gullers Grupp, for the same project.

The winner of the award Årets samhällsaktör will be presented at the event Stora Samhällsgalan in Stockholm on May 10th.
