Launched in 2008, Convergences is the first platform for thought in Europe that aims at building new convergences between public, private, and solidarity-based actors, to promote the Sustainable Development Goals and the development of a world “Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, Zero Poverty.”

The Convergences Awards 2016 are open to the projects that shall meet the following criteria:

  • The project is carried out by a solidarity-based organisation;

The Convergences Awards have two main categories:
