The Right Livelihood College (RLC) is our global capacity-building initiative in partnership with universities founded in 2009. By linking academics and civil society organisations with Right Livelihood Laureates, the College spreads awareness about and further expands the pioneering work of change-makers. The College operates as a global network of campuses and centres hosted by universities. It was initiated at the University Sains Malaysia (campus 2009-2014).

By receiving the Award, every Right Livelihood Laureate becomes a Fellow of the Right Livelihood College. The Fellows are invited to engage in education, scientific research and practical activities that spread and upscale their work.

The RLC has gained affiliate membership status with the UNESCO-based International Association of Universities (IAU). The IAU recognizes the key role higher education plays in the overall process of achieving sustainable development by pursuing the creation, dissemination and application of knowledge.
