We urgently need plans for lifestyles which enable a worthwhile, ecologically sustainable life. Such plans are available if we really want it. Everybody is asked to help conceptualizing this change and work on its implementation


The Right Livelihood Award

The Right Livelihood Award was created by Jakob von Uexküll, onetime member of the European Parliament and grandson of the biologist Jakob von Uexküll (1864-1944) He endowed the "Right Livelihood Award" (the name Uexküll gave it) by the sale of his valuable stamp collection. The Right Livelihood Award is conferred on persons, organizations and representatives of movements who provide practical guidelines and models for the right lifestyles. It does not reward scientific excellence but goes to persons and small groups who have demionstrated how big challenges can be met with small resources. These solutions to problems show the way to a better future and motivate people to emulate these models and contribute to the creation of our future.

GCN founder and chairman of the board Prof. Dr. Hans-Peter Dürr received the Right Livelihood Award in l987.
