There is a need to foster effective links between International Geneva and the communities worldwide that are affected by the policies discussed in Geneva. The Geneva Engage Awards are awarded every year to actors that have been the most effective in their social media outreach and engagement. The first Geneva Engage Awards ceremony was held in January 2016 as part of the Geneva Engage Conference.

There are three Geneva Engage Award categories: (a) International Organisations, (b) Non-Governmental Organisations, and (c) Permanent Missions.
