About the Award: The Public Peace Prize is the only peace award in the world for which the candidates are proposed, nominated and supported simply by citizens of the world. This mark of recognition allows everyone to offer their appreciation for initiatives and for people, known or unknown, who are working for reconciliation, non-violence and mutual aid.
The sole objective of the Public Peace Prize is to make better known as many peacemakers, peace projects and peace initiatives as possible to a large audience, beyond all forms of competition! The Public Peace Prize is not a cash prize but a prize of public recognition.
Just like last year, the Public Peace Prize remains a completely unconditional prize, without grants or sponsors, organized by simple volunteer citizens of the world, with the goal of fostering recognition of peacemakers and peace initiatives beyond the boundaries of culture, religion, and social affiliations!
All non-profit organizations can become partners of the prize by associating with the team to help make the prize better known through their own networks.
