Introduction - Heroes - Global Dignity Canada
GLOBAL DIGNITY DAY
Held each year on the third Wednesday of October, role models from across the country – including parents, educators, athletes, Senators, former and current Members of Parliament as well as international business and thought leaders – join thousands of volunteers to make the day possible.
Global Dignity (http://globaldignity.org) is an independent, non-political organization focused on empowering individuals with the concept that every human being has the universal right to lead a dignified life.
In Canada, role models speak with youth across the country from Nunavut to British Columbia with the aim to instill a positive, inclusive and interconnected sense of value in young people that will guide them as they grow.
Established in 2005, by HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Operation HOPE Founder, Chairman and CEO John Hope Bryant and Professor Pekka Himanen, GD is linked to the 2020 process of the World Economic Forum, in which leaders from politics, business, academia, and civil society join efforts to improve the state of the world. GD is an independent, non-political organization focused on empowering individuals with the concept that every human being has the universal right to lead a dignified life.
