Hailing from Somalia, Ukraine, Venezuela and Uganda, the 2022 Laureates have each created new models for human and societal interactions that challenge the status quo. With crises stemming from authoritarian governance, international aggression, profit-seeking economic systems and political inertia to take action against a planetary climate breakdown, these change-makers have imagined a better world and work tirelessly to make it a reality.
The 2022 Laureates are:
Fartuun Adan and Ilwad Elman, Somalia “for promoting peace, demilitarisation and human rights in Somalia in the face of terrorism and gender-based violence.”
Oleksandra Matviichuk and the Center for Civil Liberties (CCL), Ukraine “for building sustainable democratic institutions in Ukraine and modelling a path to international accountability for war crimes.”
Cecosesola, Venezuela “for establishing an equitable and cooperative economic model as a robust alternative to profit-driven economies.”
Africa Institute for Energy Governance (AFIEGO), Uganda “for their courageous work for climate justice and community rights violated by extractivist energy projects in Uganda.”
