Since 2012, the Luxembourg Peace Prize has honoured individuals or organisations who share the goals of the World Peace Forum, bringing harmony among their community.
This year’s edition will grant around a dozen awards to the outstanding in a variety of categories, ranging from activism and youth to journalism, technology and more. Each recipient is selected by a panel of international advisors who have made peace contributions in their respective fields. This year's laureates include:
Outstanding Peace Process, North and South Korea initiatives.
The event is organised by the Schengen Peace Foundation and the World Peace Forum. Special guests in the lineup include Patrick Petit, The World Peace Prayer Society, Japan, and Steve Killelea, executive chairman and founder of the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), Australia. Killelea, who has built two global software companies, is known for his philanthropy, particularly in the domain of sustainable development.
