The Diana Award Recognizes Global Changemakers

Jun. 2023

Today, The Diana Award recognized over 180 exceptional young leaders who are transforming their communities and driving positive change. Founded in honor of Diana, Princess of Wales, the Award recognizes youth aged 9-25 years old for their social action or humanitarian work, continuing the legacy of her belief that young people have the power to change the world. This year, The Diana Award recognized changemakers from 31 different countries, all united in their collective efforts to create a more equitable and inclusive world. 

Earlier this month, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex joined alumni in Los Angeles for the first-ever in person Conversations for Change, a cornerstone program designed to bring young people together around a key social issue. Before the discussion, he surprised four of this year’s Diana Award recipients with their certificates.

The afternoon brought together young humanitarians and activists from around the world to discuss innovative approaches to social change. The Duke participated in a powerful session led by Legacy Award recipient Vee Kativhu that explored alumni and recipients’ inspirational work, inequality, and the online world.
