The Right Livelihood Award is an annual prize for ‘outstanding vision and work for people and the planet’. Established in 1980 and known widely as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’, the Award honors and supports people "offering practical and exemplary answers to the most urgent challenges facing us today", and to date has honored 162 Laureates from 67 countries.
The Right Livelihood Award Foundation has its headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden and an office in Geneva, Switzerland. The Geneva office has a focus on researching candidates nominated for the Award, coordinating the Foundation’s work to support Laureates, and highlighting Laureates’ work in International Geneva.
This year, the Geneva office will be hosting the first ever Regional Conference of Right Livelihood Award Laureates in Europe from October 28-November 1 2016. The Foundation seeks a trainee to play a key role in assisting in the organizing of this event.
