The Louise Blouin Foundation Award honors individuals who have made a positive impact on a global scale. The sixth annual Awards were presented at the Blouin Creative Leadership Summit Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony on September 23, 2010 in New York City.

The achievements of each honoree extend beyond the confines of his or her chosen field and affect a truly global audience. Some of the questions and problems honorees have sought to resolve are scientific or artistic, some are economic or political, but all are relevant to the global community and all are consummate examples of creativity in
 thought and action.

The Foundation seeks recipients who have chosen highly individual paths in pursuing ambitious goals. The Award represents our esteem for the recipients’ achievements as well as our shared belief in the value of finding creative solutions to improve economic and social conditions.


 Mission Statement

The annual Blouin Creative Leadership Summit brings together 120 leading figures in the areas of science, technology, culture, business, and politics. Over three days, delegates discuss the critical challenges and opportunities presented by globalization at the local and global levels. The Summit is a think-tank forum organized by the
 Louise Blouin Foundation in collaboration with
the United Nations Office for Partnerships.

The open, multidisciplinary exchange generated by the Summit allows heads of state, business leaders and scholars to develop new solutions to the challenges posed by poverty, conflict, and economic instability. The Summit’s proceedings are broadcast worldwide on the Internet.








The Louise Blouin Foundation hosted the fifth annual Blouin Creative Leadership Summit (BCLS), which was concluded by the sixth annual Blouin Creative Leadership Awards Ceremony and Gala. During the summit, over 100 international heads of state, global CEOs, entrepreneurs, leading scholars, acclaimed artists, celebrities and influential thought-leaders assembled in New York City to address the most critical issues of the 21st century surrounding economic recovery, global governance, environmental reform, foreign policy, education, health, poverty and development and technology, and their impacting consequences beyond borders.  The gala honored leaders in politics, science, business and the arts who have made extraordinary contributions on a global level.  This year's award recipients were Philippe de Montebello former Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Yue-Sai Kan, Honorary Chairman of L’Oréal; Alex Katz, artist; and Nicholas Negroponte, Founder of One Laptop per Child.  


The BCLS is a forum in partnership with the United Nations Office of Partnerships that engages in dialogue to successfully confront the challenges and opportunities brought about by globalization over the coming decade, placing emphasis on mapping global opportunities as well as crises areas in order to identify and develop long-term strategies and solutions. At the core of the BCLS is an emphasis on cultural dialogue, a key element within globalization, as well as the foregrounding of multi-disciplinary thinking as a way to meet contemporary and future global challenges. 


“It is essential that our world leaders engage around the urgent issues facing us – our collective future; our opportunities and challenges, and how to develop solutions that will ensure a safer, healthier and more prosperous planet,” says Louise Blouin, Chairman and CEO of the Louise Blouin Foundation and founder of the BLCS. “The BCLS is about acclaimed global leaders discussing, debating and taking action on issues that effect us all, across borders and cultures.”
