From September 14-19, the 30th Anniversary Conference of the Right Livelihood Award takes place, hosted by the City of Bonn, Germany. About 80 Right Livelihood laureates gather to discuss the world's most urgent problems, to call for change, inspire, give hope and celebrate 30 years of the Right Livelihood Award.
Civil society organizations, NGOs, business, academia, activists, entrepreneurs and students have the opportunity to meet the Right Livelihood awardees, discussing their work, comparing their approaches with their own.
The conference, including a parallel youth conference, "will be a next step towards a change of course – to reclaim our future!"
