OUR COUNTRY CHAMPIONS
The Country Champions are Leaders in their field of activity. Their backgrounds are as diverse as the problems they face in their home country, but one of the things they have in common is their commitment to building a strong Instrument for Peace, Security, Democracy and Sustainable Development around the world.
Each year, the program launches a call for applications in order to select representatives. The call for applications is for mid-career professionals working actively in the areas of democracy, development and the rule of law. Candidates can work as policy makers, academics, legal professionals, social entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs and leaders of civil society organizations (such as representatives of trade unions, non-governmental organizations, the media, business and professional associations). In their current capacity, candidates must play an important and influential role in the political, economic and social development of their country. Participants must demonstrate their professional and personal achievements in a relevant area of democracy, development and the rule of law. Each year, before the summit we strive to select a diverse group of people who are at the right stage of their professional careers in order to promote, peace, security, sustainable development, democratic change etc. in their home country and face the current challenges that undermine our community.
