His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has directed the honouring of pioneering personalities and initiatives in tolerance in conjunction with UAE Year of Tolerance and the UAE 48th National Day.

The directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed to honour the UAE pioneers in tolerance comes within the framework of the Year of Tolerance 2019 announced by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and line with the approach adopted by the UAE since its establishment to welcome and incubate peoples and cultures from all parts of the world.

UAE Pioneers will be awarded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed with a medal during a special ceremony, in addition to having their names commemorated in the memory of the UAE through the UAE Pioneers book series.

All members of the community can nominate themselves, their initiatives or other persons and initiatives who have initiated a remarkable act of tolerance through the official website until the 22nd of November. A specialized committee will review the credentials and contact the nominees accordingly.
