About the Right Livelihood Award

The Right Livelihood Award was established in 1980 to “honour and support courageous people and organisations offering visionary and exemplary solutions to the root causes of global problems”. It has become widely known as the 'Alternative Nobel Prize' and there are now 170 Laureates from 69 countries.

Selection process

Anyone – except Right Livelihood Award Jury and staff members – can propose anyone (individuals or organisations), except themselves, close relatives or their own organisations, to be considered for a Right Livelihood Award. The Right Livelihood Award Foundation reserves the right to refuse clearly unsuitable proposals. Proposals must not be publicised, except to the candidate and possible referees. Failure to observe this disqualifies a proposal.

In this way, the Foundation receives proposals from all around the world. Projects from Global South countries and grassroots activists have the same chance of being proposed as, for example, a scholar or entrepreneur from the Global North. Through this open nomination process, the Foundation gets a sense of what people around the world perceive as the most urgent problems – and who develops ways to solve them.

Every year, there are more than 100 proposals for the Right Livelihood Award. After careful research by the Foundation’s research team, reports on the current proposals are submitted to the Foundation’s board and international Jury. The Jury meets annually in September to select the Recipients. The year’s Laureates are announced at a press conference in Stockholm.

How to write a proposal for a Right Livelihood Award

Proposals, preferably written in English, should be submitted both electronically and as a paper copy via regular mail to our office in Geneva. Please send only one hard copy, preferably printed double-sided.

If the total number of documents does not exceed 25 pages, please consider only submitting the proposal electronically in order to reduce our environmental footprint.

The deadline for submission of proposals to be valid for the next year is 1 March 2019. Any proposals received after this date will normally be held for consideration in the following year.
