The Right Livelihood Award (also known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize”) is intended to allow its laureates to make new investments in their projects as well as to provide them with personal support, protection and increased publicity for their causes.
Press release The Laureates of this year’s Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’, have been announced lately in Stockholm, Sweden.
The winner of the most recent Right Livelihood Award (“Alternative Nobel Prize”) was announced back in November 2016. However, as the laureate, Mozn Hassan, was not allowed to travel outside of her native Egypt she wasn’t able to participate in the awards ceremony in Stockholm.
At this year’s meeting of environmental award winners from all over the world in the southern German city of Freiburg, participants from Brazil, China, India and other countries showed a lot of interest in the Cradle to Cradle design concept.
As a way of sending out a message against the war in Syria the Right Livelihood Award Foundation this year gave one of its four Right Livelihood Awards – also often referred to as the Alternative Nobel Prizes – to the Syrian White Helmets.
