Global Dignity Day 2024

October 16 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Global Dignity Day aims to empower individuals with the belief that every human being has the inherent right to live a life marked by dignity and respect. More information will be available in the early fall.

The work of Global Dignity is guided by a simple set of principles, that every person:

  • Has the right to pursue their purpose and meaning in life, and to reach their full potential.
  • Deserves to live in societies that provide humane access to education, health, income and security.
  • Has their life, identity and beliefs respected by others.
  • Has the responsibility to create the conditions for others to fulfill their potential, acting to strengthen the dignity of others, building a foundation of freedom, justice and peace for this, and future generations.
  • Believes that dignity in action means standing up against injustice, intolerance and inequality.

Established in 2005 by HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Operation HOPE Founder John Hope Bryant, and respected Finnish professor Pekka Himanen, Global Dignity is an independent, non-profit, non-political organization dedicated to empowering young people with dignity. 

It seeks to inspire respect, self-esteem, and tolerance for diversity while promoting the notion that every human being possesses the universal right to lead a dignified life. For more information, please visit our website at www.globaldignity.ca.
