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”. Today there are 162 Laureates from 67 countries.

The Foundation’s Head Office is located in Stockholm, where the Trainee will be based. The Head Office works closely with the second office in Geneva, so you will be part of a small, but international team. The intern will work closely with our Senior Programme Director as well as independently.
