The award is given with the aim of honouring people and organizations that set an example through their work contributing to reconciliation, human rights, overcoming of racism, social justice, sustainable handling of nature and environment as well as to intercultural and interreligious understanding.
Patron of the Bremen Peace Award is Bremen’s mayor Karoline Linnert.
The Peace Prize is awarded in three categories:
Grassroots Peace Worker
This award goes to dedicated individuals and their projects, with special emphasis on future-oriented peace work at the grassroots level; for example, striving for peace in forgotten conflicts, struggling for the rights of marginalized people, or fighting against habitat destruction.
Peace Ambassador in Public Life
This award goes to renowned public figures that persistently and courageously support Peace, Justice, and the Integrity of Creation, be it in international networks or in different areas of society, such as media, arts, sciences or politics.
Award of the Donors for Encouraging Initiatives
This award goes to initiatives or organizations that do especially creative, exemplary or sustainable peace work.
From the nominations received, the schwelle Foundation will prepare a shortlist from which the donators will chose the award-winning initiative. Thus everybody, by means of a donation to the foundation, may participate in the election.
