Right Livelihood Centre Zurich

The Right Livelihood Centre of the University of Zurich acts as a hub between Right Livelihood, the University of Zurich (UZH) and the public. The Centre contributes to teaching, continuing education and public relations to make Right Livelihood Laureates’ knowledge and practical work accessible. At the same time, the centre helps to transfer academic research in the area of human rights and sustainability into the work of Right Livelihood.

The foundation for the cooperation with the University of Zurich is an annual lecture that took place in 2008 for the first time at the University’s Aula. Ever since a current Laureate holds a public lecture about their work and knowledge in November or December every year. Since 2020, the centre is assigned to the UZH Sustainability Delegate.

For more information on recent activities please visit the RLC website.
