Henley & Partners Global Citizenship Award® 2020
Nomination Form

Once a year, Henley & Partners honors an inspirational global citizen. The award is a tribute to remarkable individuals who work toward improving the global community and whose actions contribute to a more just, peaceful, and tolerant world.

What do we look for?

The Global Citizen Award® commitee looks for an inspirational individual who demonstrates extraordinary vision, courage, and commitment in contributing to advancement of a significant and pressing global issue.

'Global issues' are defined as those that transcend national boundaries and cannot be resolved by any one country acting alone.

The Global Citizen Award® is open worldwide to those who are currently working in a field with a direct link to the issues they are looking to affect and excludes political figures, opinion leaders, and celebrities. The awardee's work should not remain purely academic: it needs to demonstrate a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable social groups.

The award

The award itself consists of a bespoke sculptural medal, an award certificate signed by the chairman of the Global Citizen Award® Commitee, and the monetary prize. The monetary prize, which amounts to USD 30,000, go toward supporting the awardee's efforts. Following the award, Henley & Partners is committed to work closely with the awardee for a period of one year, raising awareness about the awardee's work and supporting their selected project.

In 2020 laureate will be selected by the Global Citizen Award® Commitee, an independent body of distinguished individuals, through a majority decision. The laureate will be honored at the Global Citizen Award® ceremony on 3-4 November in Singapore 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 recepit of the award.
