In Life
In life we find
Temporary pleasure
In God’s kingdom
We find everlasting treasure

The Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’, will be presented for the 40th time in December 2019. The Swedish Foundation behind the Award is now inviting people from across the globe to propose candidates who are working in a visionary and exemplary manner to solve global problems. The deadline is set to 1 March.

“We are seeking new candidates from all walks of life who are practical visionaries – people who are creating structural changes through concrete and successful work. As we maintain an open nomination process, everyone is welcome to propose any individual or organisation they feel lives up to this standard” said Ole von Uexkull, Executive Director of the Right Livelihood Award Foundation.

The deadline to submit a nomination is set to 1 March 2019. After careful investigation by the Foundation’s research team, reports on the current proposals are submitted to the Foundation’s board and international Jury. The Jury meets in September to select four recipients.

The Right Livelihood Award is annually presented to four Laureates. Unlike most other international prizes, it has no categories. The Award recognises that, in striving to meet the human challenges of today’s world, the most inspiring and remarkable work often defies any standard classification. Human rights, environment, education, culture and democracy-building are some examples of issues addressed by the, so far, 174 Laureates from 70 countries. Previous Laureates include Dr Denis Mukwege (DR Congo), Edward Snowden (USA), Svetlana Gannushkina (Russia) and Astrid Lindgren (Sweden).

The Right Livelihood Award will be presented for the 40th time in December and the Announcement of the 2019 Laureates in September marks the start of the celebration of the Foundation’s 40th anniversary, which includes celebrations of practical solutions to global problems in Stockholm, Geneva, Bangkok, Addis Ababa and Medellín.

Read more about the nomination process here. To propose a candidate, please follow these guidelines. Proposals for the award must remain confidential. Publicising of a proposal will result in disqualification.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We must act and dare the appropiateness and not whatever comes to our mind not floating in the likelihood but grasp the reality as brave as we can be freedom lies in action not in the absence of mind obedience knows the essence of good and satisfies it, freedom dares to act and returns God the ultimate judgment of what is right and what is wrong, Obedience performs blindly but Freedom is wide awake Freedom wants to know why, Obedience has its hands tied, Freedom is inventive obedient man respects God’s commands and by virtu of his Freedom, he creats new commands. Both Obedience and Freedom come true in responsability (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
