Nobel Laureate explains Zayed Award on Human Fraternity to Pope Francis

The Zayed Award was created in 2019, an award named after the founder of the United Arab Emirates and also associated with the pope. 

It commemorates the meeting in Abu Dhabi where Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar signed the Document on Human Fraternity.

Representatives of this award have met with the pope at the Vatican. They are collecting nominations from people committed to human brotherhood. The winner will receive $1 million in February.

The pope greeted the Nobel Prize winner Leymah Gbowee, who was instrumental in bringing peace to Liberia. 

Also present was the Senegalese, Adama Dieng, former UN advisor for the prevention of genocide. 

The pope presented them with the encyclical “Fratelli Tutti,” which will undoubtedly inspire future laureates of this prize as well.
