The Global Peace and Humanitarian Award 2021 is presented to honour individuals and organizations whose exemplary efforts have significantly improved the lives of others and contributed consistently to a culture of peace and humanitarian service, says a media release.
BDSIF regularly organizes the Bangladesh Digital Social Innovation Summit and Awards every year in light of its role in social development work and its contribution to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
For the first time on September 21, International Peace Day, BDSIF and its international affiliate DSIF have taken the initiative to organize a different event in Dubai for the establishment of world peace outside the country. 57 nominees from 16 countries will participate in this exceptional event in Dubai from August 16 through final nominations. The day-long event will feature international speakers on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and establishing peace, which will be broadcast live on Facebook Live.
During the Pandemic period, BDSIF will make arrangements for everyone to come and stay at the entire event to pay special attention to the whole event and to observe the complete hygiene rules, where Dubai Tourism will be their assistant. Steps have already been taken to make a documentary through the online Q&A session on the process of selecting the next final winner after the final nomination is completed.
The final results will be announced at the main event by a special jury board at a later date. Since the main purpose of the event is to unite the social leaders of different countries and to unite the world in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Therefore, it has been decided to announce the final winners at the main event.
All the details of the event are being communicated through BDSIF’s official Facebook page and the special event website https://gpah.cc/ said Sharif Mahmud, chief coordinator of the organizing committee.
