Award Presentation

The 40th Award Presentation was an event unlike anything the Foundation had ever put on before. For the first time in the Award’s history, the gala celebrating our 2019 Laureates was open to everyone. It was held on December 4 at Cirkus, one of Stockholm’s most prominent venues located in the historic Royal Djurgården district. More than 1,200 guests attended the celebration, with many more viewers following the broadcast online. The Award Presentation in Stockholm was preceded by a political and public programme for Laureates in Berlin, Geneva and Zurich. From 1985-2015, the Right Livelihood Awards were presented in the Swedish Parliament on the invitation of an all-party group of Swedish parliamentarians (SÄRLA – Association for the Right Livelihood Award in the Swedish Parliament)
