About Right Livelihood
Right Livelihood is a courage-powered community for social change. Each year, we present the Right Livelihood Award.

We have offices in Stockholm and Geneva.
As part of our long-term support for Laureates, we cooperate with global university networks such as the Right Livelihood College and the Global Campus of Human Rights to create and offer learning resources about how Laureates bring about social change. Over one hundred academic institutions in both networks around the world help to arrange lectures and seminars, as well as other activities with Laureates.
