OWA 45,000 Euros Prize: IFOAM and Rapunzel Call for Nominations

IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) and Rapunzel (Organic food producer) call for nominations from individuals or organizations for One World Award (OWA). OWA is an international recognition with a total prize of 45,000 Euros for extraordinary and impactful ideas, projects, and individuals.

The One World Award highlights extraordinary individuals and impactful initiatives. We are inspired by the vibrancy and energy of nominations and laureates. Through their stories of success, they show that a better world is not only possible but also attainable! The OWA prize opens our eyes to the fact that there is another way to do things – Louise Luttikholt, Executive Director of IFOAM, Organics International

This prestigious international award will be presented for the sixth time. The call for nominations will run until September 30, 2019. From the nominees, five laureates will be selected by a jury to receive this ‘Encourager Award’ at a celebratory gala on occasion of the Rapunzel ONE WORLD Festival in September 2020 in Legau/Allgäu, Germany. Endowed at a sum of 45,000 Euros, the OWA honours individuals who steer globalization in a positive and humane direction. Winning projects will incorporate ecological, economic, and social elements.

The OWA committee will announce 2020 winners in autumn 2019. Laureates can expect to be presented to the media and at the 2020 gala. Four laureates will receive a cash prize of 5,000 Euros and an OWA medal. One winner, the best of the best, will be awarded the OWA Gold Award by an international jury. In addition to a bronze “Lady OWA” statute, the OWA Gold Award winner will receive a 25,000 Euro cash prize. All prize money is sponsored by Rapunzel.

At a time when global political leadership is increasingly characterized by egocentricity and nationalism, the OWA prize is more necessary than ever, therefore nominate now – Joseph Wilhelm, OWA initiator and founder/director of Rapunzel
