Established in 1980, we are committed to peace, justice and sustainability for all.
Each year, we present the Right Livelihood Award. By recognising the actions of brave visionaries and building impactful connections around the world, the Award boosts urgent and long-term social change. 186 Laureates from 73 countries have received the distinction to date.
However, our work goes beyond only presenting the Award. We provide these change-makers with long-term support. We work to raise their profile, highlight their solutions, provide protection when their lives and liberty are in danger and link them and their innovative solutions to academia.
We believe that lasting change requires concerted action based on diverse solutions. We do our part by nurturing a growing community of courageous change-makers, connecting them and their solutions worldwide.
