A sea slug called Mandelia Micocornata named after Mandela by the marine biologists, Angel Vlades and Terry Gosliner who discovered it, as an honour. It is regarded as something of an honour to have a species of organism named after you. To have a genus named after you is even more of an honour because new genera are less often named than new species. However, an even greater honour is to have a family named after you because new families are rarely created. Valdés & Gosliner (1999) honoured Nelson Mandela by naming a genus and family of seaslug (Mollusca: Nudibranchia) after him. Mandelia mirocornata has only been recorded along the coast line of the Cape Peninsula

Chicago Jazz Philharmonics put on a production entitled "From Ella to Mandela" at the Auditorium Theatre, Roosevelt University, 50 E. Congress Parkway, Chicago. 'From Ella to Mandela: A Celebration of the African and American Spirit' presents a musical exploration of the contributions of the female vocalists to the jazz genre, and a Nelson Mandela-inspired suite, 'Hope in Action.' 'From Ella to Mandela' will feature some of Chicago's most celebrated jazz vocalists -- Dee Alexander, Terisa Griffin and Maggie Brown -- paying tribute to the legacies of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn and Billie Holiday. The second half of the program is 'Hope in Action,' composed in honor of Mandela's 90th birthday celebration. This work seamlessly weaves jazz, classical and South African-inspired melodies, interspersed with moments of inspirational oration taken from Mandela's speeches. The work culminates with a grand chorus featuring Soul Children of Chicago. Also featured are celebrated Chicago saxophonists Ari Brown and Ernest Dawkins and special guest orator actress T'Keyah Crystal Keymah.

Congressional Gold Medal. Presented in Congress by Bill Clinton to Mandela. He said: "Today we offer a man who has received the Nobel Prize, the highest honour within the gift of this country. But this day is to be more than a day in which we bask in his reflected glory, we ask orselves, what gift can we really give Nelson Mandela in return for 10 000 long days in jail? How can we truly redeem the life of Amy Biehl? How can we honour all of those who marched and worked with Nelson Mandela, who are no longer standing by his side?"

Mandela is Patron-in-chief of the Presidents' Award for Youth Empowerment. The President's Award for Youth Empowerment has strong international links through its affiliation with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award which was started in 1956 by HRH, The Prince Philip. The Award Programme was first introduced in the United Kingdom in 1956 as The Duke of Edinburgh's Award. The aim was to motivate young people to become involved in a balanced programme of voluntary self-development activities to take them through the potentially difficult period between adolescence and adulthood. Today, the Award Programme through the network of The International Award Association, is operated in more than 120 countries, with 21 in Africa. In South Africa, the Award Programme started out as the Gold Shield Award in 1983 and 11 years later, in 1994, with the dawn of the new democratic South Africa, was relaunched as The President's Award for Youth Empowerment, with then South African President, Nelson Mandela as the Founding Patron-in-Chief. In Grahamstown, Nelson Mandela and Britain’s Prince Edward recognised 200 young South Africans for their help in poor communities.
