The award ceremony will take place at the Vasa Museum, a long-term partner of the Right Livelihood Award Foundation and the most visited museum in Scandinavia. It will be followed by a political and public programme for Laureates in Berlin and Geneva. The Right Livelihood Award Foundation looks forward to celebrating our 2016 Laureates with a high-level programme in Sweden and internationally.
