His Highness the Aga Khan receives the Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship
21 September 2016
At a ceremony in Toronto, the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson presented His Highness the Aga Khan with the inaugural Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship.
Each year, in collaboration with its partners, the AKDN generates electricity for 10 million people who were previously without reliable energy supplies.
One million dollars are shared among prize winners, as determined by the independent Master Jury. Half the prize money is a grant for promoting the replicable aspects of the design.
As of 2017, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture will be 40 years old, making it the oldest major award in the field.
