The World Citizenship Award, facilitated by the Hamilton Mundialization Committee on behalf of city council, honours Hamilton residents who have made significant contributions toward Hamilton’s world citizenship by promoting the values and core principles of mundialization and through work for world peace either locally or globally.

The ceremony is hosted by the Hamilton Mundialization Committee, a council-mandated advisory committee of the City of Hamilton whose function, fundamentally, is to facilitate and support peace initiatives and the twinning relationships between Hamilton and its nine twin-cities around the world. Our commitment is based on the belief in the interdependence of people around the world, and that future peace and progress are dependent on co-operation, goodwill and understanding. The Mundialization Committee is a member of the Roundtable on Strengthening Hamilton’s Community Initiatives.
