50 years ago, Mrs. Julia Evelyn Morley CBE launched Beauty With A Purpose as her vision for every Miss World contestant to shine their light on the world. The vision has become a global platform for brilliant young women to raise awareness and funds in support of their humanitarian, educational and ecological causes. The philanthropic contributions of Mrs. Morley and the Miss World Events that started back in 1951 were highlighted in the event amongst the invitees of the CC Forum by the Gurung Family.
Miss World Events have raised such big names as Aishwarya Rai, Zhang Zilin, Mireia Lalaguna, Priyanka Chopra, and Azra Akın, to name a few. “The Gurung Family now joins the legacy and we will be hosting Miss World Events together from its 71st Edition throughout the world and collectively taking the event and charity to a whole new level” – says Mr. Stephen Morley, Executive Producer of Miss World.
During the event, Ms. Karolina Bielawska, reigning Miss World, acknowledged the importance of sustainability and said “Since childhood, holiday in the Himalayas was on my bucket-list. I am honored to be invited to this Forum by Miss World and Gurung Family to raise awareness about the melting of the Himalayan Glaciers due to climate change. It is one of the most visible consequences of Climate Change and collective efforts are needed to solve it.”
The Gurung family has announced lately their new venture – Himalaya Jet, a Europe-based premium long haul carrier as a part of their conglomerate which also owns Privé Luxury Cinemas at various high-end hotels around the world and has investments in several eco-friendly ventures like hydrogen-powered urban cars and sustainable hydro-electric powers. The joint initiatives of CC Forum, Miss World, and Gurung Family to raise awareness about the impact of climate change on the Himalayan Glaciers were highlighted during the event.
