The Global Citizen Award Medal
The Global Citizen Award medal is the original artwork of leading Italian artist Antonio Nocera, whose sculptures and installations have been exhibited at the Art Biennale in Venice and at the European Parliament in Brussels. Nocera has created masterpieces in collaboration with international institutions such as the European Parliament, UNESCO, and UNICEF and he has also worked extensively for the Vatican City and Pope John Paul II.
Much of Nocera’s work is centered on the inalienable human right to freedom, the desire for spiritual elevation, and the urgent need for change, inherent in every human being. He explores culture as a conduit to achieve freedom from prejudice and to break the chains of ignorance worldwide.
The medal, developed in 2014 for the first edition of the award, evokes the spirit of global citizenship and represents ideas of freedom, migration, and mobility.
