On Sunday, Jan. 17, PeaceTech Lab is presenting its International Peace Honors.
“The International Peace Honors is a global celebration honouring the achievements of the most outstanding global leaders and change-agents of our time, whose tireless efforts have helped to create a more prosperous and peaceful world for all,” declares PeaceTech Lab, a nonprofit launched as a centre of innovation at the U.S. Institute of Peace.
Spanish singer-songwriter Natalia Jiménez is host of this year’s event, which will honour singer Ricky Martin, infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, Argentine singer-songwriter Ricardo Montaner, Black Lives Matter co-founder Opal Tometi, Amazonian Chief Raoni and the “father of the internet” Vint Cerf.
