Arnault, Chairman & CEO, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, with the Appeal of Conscience Award for his leadership to advance international cooperation, the environment, and the arts.  Muhtar Kent, Chairman & CEO, The Coca-Cola Company received the Appeal of Conscience Award for his contribution in the fields of education and the environment and The Rt. Hon. Gordon Brown MP, Prime Minister of Great Britain was presented the Foundation’s World Statesman Award.

that brings together leaders of business, public and religious life, members of the diplomatic corps, and prominent religious leaders of the Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Armenian, Greek Orthodox and Russian Orthodox communities.

Upon receiving the Appeal of Conscience Award, Bernard J. Arnault stated that, “The world can only thrive if it is sustained by the spirit of progress and the thirst for peace. A universe will not be able to survive without the spread of liberty, the willingness to talk and the spirit of tolerance. What should bring men together is far stronger than the perception they may have, which is an illusion that separates them.”

“We believe in creating a better world through cross-cultural understanding. ACF’s support and passion for peace and tolerance inspires us and sends a powerful message in this time of such
great need.”
