Jerónimo Calderón – Director

Jerónimo loves life, nature, and Michelle in particular. He descends from the indigenous tribe of the Aymara and Swiss peasants, is co-founder of the youth-led social business euforia, an Ashoka fellow, and a Global Shaper of the World Economic Forum. He taught semester- and week-long classes on changemaking for undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students at the University of Geneva, the Business School of St. Gall, and at ETH Zurich. In addition, he serves as a board member of WWF Switzerland and is a co-creator of the Wellbeing Project, NeoTribes, Amanitas and Tierra Valiente.

In 2017, Jerónimo was the first recipient of the ThinkPACT fellowship by öbu – the Swiss Business Council on Sustainable Development, which granted him half a million Swiss Francs to develop an innovative approach to engage business leaders in taking action on sustainable development. As a result, he co-created the Happy [   ] Lab playbook together with over 100 exceptional practitioners, artists and designers of [inner and outer] system change from across the globe.
