On December 4th, the Global School for Social Leaders hosted a Latam Awards Ceremony 2019 in support of the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens, Humanist World, Cámara de Diputados, 1 Million Startups, and GIAO at the Impact Hub in Vienna. At the ceremony, the top 8 selected social leaders and innovators from Latin America, who work for the SDGs, were awarded the “Latin America Leader Award 2019.”
Giving a keynote, BKMC CEO Monika Froehler asked the audience,
“Do you believe that you can make a change in this world?”
She said that by networking and cooperating with each other, we will eventually be able to convince that “we CAN make it happen.”
Froehler also introduced the Ban Ki-moon Centre’s partner Global Citizen to the gathered social entrepreneurs by explaining how it all started as a small initiative by young change-makers who now raise billions of money to make changes in the global society and how individuals can contribute to creating a bigger impact by doing global citizen deeds.
Ambassador Alejandro Solano of the Embassy of Costa Rica in Austria, Consul Fernando Flores of Ecuador in Austria, Diego Masera, Chief of the Renewable Energy Unit at UNIDO, and other SDG experts and global social entrepreneurs also delivered speech and presentations.
