"Taking on social responsibility is an essential component in changing our society in a sustainable and positive way. Every individual can make a contribution. All it takes is the will and an open heart. SozialMarie promotes and supports the best and most innovative social projects and makes them visible. It opens new ways and helps us to overcome barriers. It is a pleasure for me to take over the active patronage."

"The 1989 regime change created space for countrywide social innovation. With my friends we were involved in designing and building up a new country and civil society. The experience of acting as one of the system-changing youngsters determined my whole life and enthusiasm."

Barbara Erős is a cultural anthropologist by profession dedicated to civil society and social innovation development for the past 25 years in Hungary, Western Balkans with some sight on Ethiopia and Vietnam. She started her career at Ashoka: Innovators for the Public that fundamentally injected her with the idea of social entrepreneurship. Following she gained experience in designing CSO tailored granting systems and in impact financing at the Foundation for Development of Democratic Rights – DemNet Hungary. In 2017 she was invited to MagNet Bank, Hungary's first and only value-oriented community bank to act as the head of Civil society and Community Relations Department. As for her greater social role she is working on strengthening the Hungarian social entrepreneurial/start-up ecosystem.

"Smerujeme do obdobia, keď rozvoj technológií a umelej inteligencie spôsobí, že všetky predpovedateľné činnosti a pracovné úkony, ktoré možno automatizovať, naplánovať a vykonávať opakovaným spôsobom, budú postupne naplánované, automatizované a vykonávané počítačovými programami a robotmi. Ale existujú činnosti, ktoré roboty nezvládajú. Také , kde je potrebná empatia, súcit a precítenie hodnotových dilem. Tam bude človek potrebný vždy. Preto potrebujeme sociálnych inovátorov, ľudí ktorých vedia byť tvoriví, v prospech nás všetkých. Vážim si týchto originálnych ľudí s dobrým srdcom."

“Humans are a social species that evolved to its current global domination by being very good at adapting to changes in the environment. Adapting humans are socially innovating humans. We are now in the Anthropocene, our globalized civilization of industrial-scale consumerism is causing risky changes in the environment for our and all other species on the planet. Humans will keep adapting by socially innovating.”
