We want to send a big thank you to everyone who applied for the Global Awards and helped make these anniversary celebrations a success. We feel honored, inspired and humbled by each and every application that shows the impact of the Programme at professional, personal and community levels.

Our jury members chose the awardees based on how well they embodied the values of Learning to Live Together and how they have influenced a positive transformation in others as well as in themselves, by carrying out context-sensitive programs that foster interfaith and/or intercultural learning and improve mutual understanding and respect in their communities. They took into account the applicants' resourcefulness, creativity, active engagement, drive, and passion, together with the reach and outcomes of their work.

Now it's time to announce the Learning to Live Together Global Awards winners:
