GEM Going the Extra Mile

Event Details

GEM is a mobile reward system for social volunteers, backed by the Dutch Social Trade Organisation- STRO. Corporate sponsors that wish to support social volunteers can donate goods, services or money. These resources are then converted into GEMs and are earned by doing community work, separating waste, planting trees etc.

GEMs can then be spent on airtime, pre-paid electricity, movie tickets and groceries. One of the main goals of GEM is to stimulate corporate counterparts to apply their Corporate Social Responsibility Investments through the GEM model. In Department of Design, the Dutch Social Trade Organisation and GEM aim to show the value that GEM can add to CSR strategies and activities, not to mention the incredible impact they will have in #cocreating an engaging and productive society
