The Global Centre for Pluralism invites entries for the Global Pluralism Award 2019. The Global Pluralism Award is a program that aims to recognize individuals, businesses, organizations, and governments who are tackling the challenge of living peacefully and productively with diversity. Beyond public recognition and a monetary prize, the Award aims to raise the profile of pluralism champions globally, inspire action and motivate a broader community to innovate in their respective fields of practice.

The Global Pluralism Award recognizes pluralism in action. It celebrates the extraordinary achievements of organizations, individuals and governments who are tackling the challenge of living peacefully and productively with diversity.

Pluralism is not simply diversity. Pluralism is a principle of respect for human diversity. A commitment to pluralism requires that diversity is protected and valued. Human differences become understood as a source of common good and an engine of social and economic innovation.
