The 21st Century Leaders Awards
The 21st Century Leaders Awards are granted to individuals who, whilst being leaders in their own fields, have also made a serious commitment and significant impact on their chosen cause.
The award is given to individuals who have used their influence to raise awareness, their celebrated status to raise funds, and the respect and notoriety which they have gained from successes in their chosen profession, to make positive policy changes to progress either environmental or humanitarian concerns.
The 21st Century Leaders Awards also enable us to honour three carefully selected local heroes, awarding them the 21st Century Leaders Unsung Hero Award for their significant contribution to the benefit of their local community.
The next award is planned to take place in Switzerland in May 2014.
