5 Nominees Announced for Les Jeunes Du Monde Unis Awards 2018
What are the Les Jeunes du Monde Unis Awards? In a world rampant with poverty and conflict, The Les Jeunes du Monde Unis association works across all five continents, aiming to promote the fundamental values necessary for mankind to prosper and coexist.
On the 12 November 2018, The Les Jeunes du Monde Unis association will be honouring individuals they believe have made outstanding contributions within their respective humanitarian and ecological fields. Whether it be their tireless and selfless work with the community, extraordinary innovations or assiduous bravery in standing up against corruption, the recipients of the Les Jeunes du Monde Unis “Values Awards 2018” have all fought valiantly to make the world a better place.
The award ceremony will take place at the Casino de Madrid, following a short reception and a fashion show by the virtuoso designer Ehsan Chamoun – all after a weekend of Youth Leadership seminars, workshops and activities hosted by Les Jeunes du Monde Unis that not only attempt to educate leaders, but provide them with the utensils necessary to co-operate and creatively coalesce with influential leaders across the world.
The recipients of the Les Jeunes du Monde Unis Awards remind us that any one individual can make a profound difference. We can, and should all be foot soldiers in the fight for social, economic, political and ecological progression and justice.
