There is a need to foster effective links between International Geneva and the communities worldwide that are affected by the policies discussed in Geneva. The Geneva Engage Awards are awarded every year to actors that have been the most effective in their social media outreach and engagement. The first Geneva Engage Awards ceremony was held in January 2016 as part of the Geneva Engage Conference.
There are three Geneva Engage Award categories: (a) International Organisations, (b) Non-Governmental Organisations and Non-Profits, and (c) Permanent Missions. The selection for the award is based on DiploFoundation's analysis on the innovative and effective use of social media.
This year, the Awards will be handed out during an event to be held on 8 February, between 15.00 and 17.30, at the DiploFoundation offices, WMO Building, 7bis Avenue de la Paix, Geneva.
