It is with great pleasure that the Champalimaud Foundation welcomes the news of the appointment of António Guterres as Secretary-General of the United Nations.

  1. 6.10.2016

    Distinguished Jury-member of the António Champalimaud Vision Award since its inception in 2006, António Guterres now receives confirmation and recognition of the merits of his work and effort, particularly in his handling of one of the most delicate topics of today – refugees – as United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

    The Champalimaud Foundation congratulates António Guterres, not only as a Portuguese, a statesman, a humanist, but also as a friend whose humane and personal characteristics made him part of one of the most cherished Champalimaud Foundation projects, and who will now have a function that will allow him to make a difference in the world, with a profound impact on the lives of thousands of people, especially those with the smallest voices.
