2019 Henley & Partners Global Citizen Award
Deadline: June 5, 2019.
Global issues are defined by the UN as issues that transcend national boundaries and cannot be resolved by any one country acting alone. These issues are the global challenges that humanity faces today and require all segments of society to work together to alleviate.
Support their search for a remarkable and inspirational individual who demonstrates extraordinary vision, courage, innovation, and commitment in contributing to the advancement of a pressing global issue.
The Global Citizen Award® is open to:
- Individuals — rather than organizations or institutions — who have consistently worked to contribute to a global issue
- Individuals involved in field work who are not politicians or celebrities
- Individuals conducting academic work that demonstrates a concrete, positive impact on the lives of vulnerable social groups
- Individuals applying innovative methodologies or devising new products and services that significantly contribute to the resolution of a global issue
The 2019 laureate will be honored at the Global Citizen Award® gala event on 14 November at the Dorchester Hotel in London as part of the annual Henley & Partners Global Citizenship Conference. Henley & Partners will cover the awardee’s travel and accommodation expenses. Participation in the event is considered a condition for the receipt of the award.
