About the Geneva Engage Award

The annual Geneva Engage Awards recognise International Geneva actors in their social media outreach, online engagement and efforts towards more inclusive online meetings.

This year Geneva Engage Awards will take it a step further: they will examine Geneva’s global footprint by looking at and Geneva’s web relevance through SEO analysis. 

Ultimately, Geneva Engage examines the links between International Geneva and communities from around the world that are affected by the policies discussed and negotiated in Geneva in areas such as development, human rights, and digital issues.

The three categories of the Geneva Engage Awards are:

  • International Organisations
  • Non-Governmental Organisations and Associations
  • Permanent Representations to the UN in Geneva
