THE Award Ceremony

In the meantime, the Foundation will adapt its training and advocacy activities to support the Laureates throughout the winter.

Save the new date for the Ceremony on June 2, 2022 which will be organized together with our co-host, the City of Geneva. Information about the venue and exact time of the event will follow shortly.
