One day to celebrate people paving the way to a better future for all.

Each year, we take a day to celebrate the courage and ingenuity of Right Livelihood Laureates and present them with the Award. For many of them, this prestigious event is a well-deserved moment of joy and celebration after years and decades of hard and courageous work.

The annual Award Presentation is our way of honouring and turning the spotlight on change-makers, whose achievements and struggles create a better future for all of us. Held in Stockholm at the end of the year, the event aims to inspire people attending and tuning in from around the world.

We hope to welcome you to this joyous event in the future – whether in person or online! Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive information on our next Award Presentation.
