The international One World Award honors people and their projects that make the world a better place; it is dedicated to people who give us positive and innovative examples of globalization - people who make the future worth living.
The biennial One World Award is endowed with 25,000 €, donated by Rapunzel Naturkost, and is under the patronage of IFOAM. The prize was first presented at the IFOAM Organic World Congress in Modena, Italy in 2008.
