Nominations Open for Global Citizen Award

Deadline: 5 June 2019

The Global residence and citizenship advisory firm Henley and Partners has announced the call for nominations for its annual Global Citizen Award. Entering into its fifth year, this unique international accolade honors remarkable individuals tackling the global challenges affecting humanity today.

Nominations are open to those who demonstrate vision, courage, and innovation in driving global change, and whose work has a directly positive impact on the lives of people in socially vulnerable groups.

Once a year, Henley and 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.

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.

Award Information

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