Céline Dion

The international superstar Céline Dion was appointed UNESCO Artist for Peace in September 1999, in recognition of her commitment to the ideals of the Organization by defending the values of the protection of childhood, the assistance to the most deprived and the fight against exclusion through popular music.

Céline Dion received the Icon Award for her outstanding contribution to the music industry at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards ceremony.

In her capacity as UNESCO Artist for Peace, she made a video speech which was very much welcomed during the Conference entitled “Internet and the radicalization of youth: Preventing, Acting and Living together”, held in Quebec city, Canada, from 30 October to 1 November 2016, in the framework of the UNESCO Information for All Programme (IFAP).
