2011 Annual International Sophie Prize Award of $ 100,000 (Individuals and Orgs) working in Environment and Development

 Deadline Nov 1 2010

Nomination Guidelines

Eligible voluntary organisations, institutions and individuals worldwide, with knowledge or interest in environment and/or sustainable development are welcome to nominate candidates for the Sophie Prize.

Candidate's nominated by them selves or by their staff or by honorary officers will not be taken into consideration.

Annual deadline for nomination is November 1st.


The Sophie Prize will be awarded to an individual or an organisation 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 wisdom?
  • What qualities of life are the most important?
  • 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.
