Think Tank & Award History

Established in 1961, the Gold Mercury Awards® are the first Global Governance Awards. Our laureates, members, and supporters include some of the world’s most important thinkers and doers, world leaders, governments, companies, and organisations.

Our global brand values of sustainable development

The Gold Mercury Awards’ purpose has always been to promote Visionary Governance®, advance sustainability and foster peaceful relations and international cooperation. This mission allows our partners to be recognised as supporters and thought leaders on major global issues.

Global Network & Community

Organising Gold Mercury Summits and Award Ceremonies has always been part of our mission to unite the world’s greatest minds to debate crucial world issues and affairs. Our global network gives our partners access to an influential group of world leaders, experts, innovators and thinkers, the possibility to build relationships of the highest level, and the opportunity to demonstrate an interest in solving global challenges and intellectual debate.
