The Tällberg Foundation explores the issues that are challenging and changing our societies with the goal of stimulating new thinking for a new world.
They also believe that a new kind of leadership is badly needed for our societies to prosper: leadership that is innovative, courageous, dynamic, rooted in universal values and global in implication.
In that spirit they have established the Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize named in honor of Jan Eliasson, one of the most accomplished global diplomats of our era and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to recognize their tremendous support to the prize and for being the most dynamic and innovative global philanthropic organizations – one that uses its resources and imagination to promote positive global change.
The prize is awarded annually to outstanding leaders who demonstrate the willingness and capacity to address the complexity of 21st-century challenges in innovative, risk-taking, and ethical ways, and whose work is global in aspiration or implication and is rooted in universal values.
Prize winners may be nominated by anyone, anywhere and are ultimately selected by a secret ballot of a jury composed of accomplished global leaders.
- They will award two prizes for established leaders whose track record of accomplishments is substantial and who, in the jury’s judgement, are likely to continue to make important, positive contributions in their chosen field. Each of these awards will carry a $50,000 honorarium.
- They will recognize five winners in the category of emerging leaders who have already demonstrated high potential and capacity, but the bulk of whose accomplishments are likely to be in the future. Each of these five awards will carry a $10,000 honorarium.
The deadline for nominations is 26 April 2022.
