The Ceremony

The ceremony is organized by UNHCR in cooperation with the Government of Norway and the Norwegian Refugee Council, the State Council of the Republic and Canton of Geneva, the Administrative Council of the City of Geneva and the IKEA Foundation.

Invitations are being prepared now and will be emailed in July to high-level ministers and senior diplomats attending UNHCR’s annual Executive Committee meeting; local and national Swiss authorities; heads of partner humanitarian agencies; UNHCR corporate partners; UNHCR staff; and invited members of the media.

Unfortunately, the event is not open to the general public. However the event will be streamed online and there will be a range of ways to join the conversation.
