Join us for a Celebration of UN Sunday and the opportunity to meet and hear from this year’s John Gibbard Award winner. “The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.” We still affirm this principle and extend our support for the vision and effective work of the UN.
The John Gibbard Memorial Award is presented annually by the Vancouver Branch of the UN Association in Canada in recognition and memory of John Gibbard, who was a supporter of the League of Nations from its creation in 1919, in the wake of the First World War. When the League ceased to exist, John Gibbard continued to support the ideals upon which the League had been founded. When the United Nations was formed after the Second World War, he became an active member of the UN Association in Canada. He was dedicated to involving youth in the creation of a better world for all.
