Henley & Partners Global Citizen Award
Once a year, Henley & Partners honors an inspirational global citizen who has worked towards significantly improving and supporting the global community, and whose action or thinking has in some way contributed to a more just, peaceful, and tolerant world.
The Award Committee looks for a remarkable individual who demonstrates vision, courage, and commitment in contributing to the advancement of a global issue, whether this is social, political or environmental. The candidate’s work should demonstrate a positive impact on the lives of the most vulnerable groups in society.
The Award consists of a specially made commemorative medal, an Award Certificate signed by the President of the Award Committee, and a USD 50,000 monetary prize. USD 25,000 of the prize is donated to help the awardee continue their excellent work and an equal share is committed to support the longstanding partnership between Henley & Partners and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
The annual laureate of the Global Citizen Award is chosen by the Award Committee, an independent body of distinguished individuals, through a majority decision.
