LUCSUS warmly congratulates the recently announced 2022 Right Livelihood Award laureates: Fartuun Adan and Ilwad Elman (Somalia), Oleksandra Matviichuk/Center for Civil Liberties (Ukraine), Cecosesola; Central de Cooperativas de Lara (Venezuela) and the Africa Institute for Energy Governance (Uganda).

Since 1980, the Right Livelihood has recognized individuals and organizations for their exceptional commitment to social justice, tackling global problems and creating a better world for all. This year’s laureates represent new forms of activism and local organizing that have proven effective in instigating needed structural change in the face of failed governance and breakdown of international order.

Since 2009, LUCSUS has been the proud host of the Right Livelihood College Campus in Lund, which, among other RLC campuses, has been helping connect and spread the impact of the important work of Right Livelihood laureates to education and research.

You can read more about this year’s Right Livelihood laureates on the Right Livelihood website.

We also encourage everyone to tune in to the televised Award Presentation in Stockholm on Wednesday, November 30 where the 2022 Laureates will be honoured officially.”
