The Treaties of Nijmegen Medal is a biannual prize that is awarded to one of the key international figures committed to European development.
The 2018 Treaties of Nijmegen Medal will be awarded to Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever. He will receive this in recognition of his contributions, on a national and an international scale, for a greener and more sustainable living environment. The medal will be presented on 5 April in St. Stevenskerk in Nijmegen. Following the award ceremony, Polman will give the Treaties of Nijmegen address.
This will be the fifth time that the medal is presented. In 2010, Jacques Delors received the inaugural award, while in 2012 it went to Umberto Eco and in 2014 to Neelie Kroes. The 2016 Treaties of Nijmegen Medal was awarded to the European Court of Human.
