A feature that sets the Right Livelihood Award apart from many other international prizes is that Laureates are provided with life-long support by the Foundation.
The presentation of the Right Livelihood Award is only the start of a life-long relationship between the Laureates and the Foundation. We strive to work alongside the Laureates to amplify their voices, providing them with the network and protection they need to realise their visions for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world.
The Foundation is deeply committed to strengthening the network of Laureates through coordinating opportunities for cooperation. Our Advocacy activities aim to make the Laureates’ voices heard and defend their causes. Additionally, when a Laureate’s life and liberty are at risk, the Foundation puts in place a range of safeguards to enhance that Laureate’s protection.
The long-term support provided by the Foundation to individual Laureates is tailored to meet their specific needs. Activities include everything from funding security measures to establishing contact with UN agencies and promoting advocacy campaigns.
The Foundation’s support work is made possible through the generous support of our donors, and there are many ways to get involved.
