UNESCO Club Sorbonne award by the title of honorary Cross-cultural Ambassadors of UNESCO Club Sorbonne, personalities making a particular intercultural impact.
The Cross-cultural Ambassadors are committed and have generously contributed to the understanding and intercultural communication, making important contribution in the following fields: education, culture, science and communication and information.
The honorary title of Cross-cultural Ambassadors is reserved for individuals who have distinguished themselves in favor of multiculturalism, but can also reward a great personal commitment to human rights, peace and social justice and to greet an exemplary career.
In each discipline, candidatures are coming mainly from the proposals of UNESCO Club members, but the club is open to consider the candidates being recommended from Sorbonne University colleagues, colleagues from other UNESCO clubs, the French Federation of UNESCO Clubs, or UNESCO.
The title of Ambassador Intercultural is purely honorary, without material gain, with only purpose of honoring an important intercultural contribution.
Cross-Cultural Ambassadors of UNESCO Club Sorbonne website is coming soon.
