The Sophie Prize will be awarded to an individual or an organization that in a pioneering or a particularly creative way, has pointed to alternatives to the present development and/or put such alternatives into practice.
- What kind of change of consciousness is needed?
- What is sustainable development?
- What important alternative measures must be implemented now?
- What kind of mobilisation of people is needed in the “global village”?
The recipient of The Sophie Prize will have sought a challenging answer to one or several of the questions above and thus contributed to setting them on the international agenda. Concerning fair distribution of resources and global environment and development issues, we will distinguish between what is (seen to be) possible to achieve in the short run and what is truly necessary in the long run. The Sophie Prize will honour efforts to promote changes in the world that are necessary in a long-term perspective.NOMINATION FORM
