Right Livelihood Award Heroes

Jakob von Uexkull

The Right Livelihood Award was established in 1980 by Jakob von Uexkull as THE PRIZE FOR OUTSTANDING VISION AND WORK ON BEHALF OF OUR PLANET AND ITS PEOPLE. Viewed by many as the "The Alternative Nobel Prize" this award seeks to highlight the efforts of those who are addressing crucial issues that concern the 21st century, and to provide inspiration for today's heroes for a better world. There are more than 100 Right Livelihood laureates - some of which are featured on this website. For the complete list: www.rightlivelihood.org
