The Right Livelihood Award has honoured courageous change-makers since 1980.
The Award aims to boost urgent and long-term social change. It does this by recognizing the actions of brave visionaries working for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world for all.
Each year, Right Livelihood receives nominations from around the world through an open process allowing anyone to submit nominations. After thorough research, the Jury made up of international experts and previous Laureates chooses that year’s most outstanding change-makers.
The work culminates in the annual Award Presentation, where we honour the new Laureates, welcoming them into the Right Livelihood community.
