Kofi Annan would have celebrated his eighty second birthday on April 8th 2020. It was on this day that an announcement was made that would see the protocol lounge at Geneva Airport renamed “Espace Kofi Annan”.
Mr Annan’s widow, Kofi Annan greeted the decision warmly and was “deeply moved” by the gesture.
As we now face one of the biggest global challenges in our lifetime, we remember the words and actions of Kofi Annan.
Quotes and images from his lifetime will decorate the lounge, hopefully inspiring today’s current world leaders.
Once corona virus restrictions are relaxed, a ceremony will take place.
