CHANGING THE WORLD,
ONE GREAT LEADER AT A TIME

ABOUT THE PRIZE

The Tällberg / Eliasson Global Leadership Prize

The Tällberg / Eliasson Global Leadership Prize, named in honor of Jan Eliasson one of the most accomplished global diplomats of our era, is given annually to outstanding leaders from any country and any discipline whose work is innovative, optimistic, courageous, rooted in universal values and global in implication.

Prize winners may be nominated by anyone, anywhere and are ultimately selected by a secret ballot of a jury composed of accomplished global leaders.

Each prize winner receives $50,000—made possible by the generous support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation—and engagement with a network of leaders committed to moving our societies from what they are to what they could be.

WHO MAKES THIS POSSIBLE?

Sponsor

The Tällberg Foundation, launched in 1981, exists to explore the issues that are challenging —and changing— our societies. Today, those challenges are profound: the world that we have known since the mid 20th century, which produced unprecedented peace as well as human advance, is changing at a pace and in directions that threaten to evolve towards Orwellian dystopia.
But forces for “good” still exist and need to be renewed, made more muscular and more effective. The Foundation aspires to be part of that process.
Tällberg’s work program focuses on understanding how to re-inject ethics into leadership; re-establish the legitimacy of governance; and manage, instead of being managed by, disruptive technologies, climate change, mass migration and other phenomena. We aim to contribute to the new thinking —and new acting— required by this moment in history.

Lead Supporter

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation [(SNF)(www.SNF.org)] is one of the world’s leading private, international philanthropic organizations, making grants in the areas of arts and culture, education, health and sports, and social welfare. Since 1996, the Foundation has committed more than $2.6 billion, through more than 4,300 grants to nonprofit organizations in 124 nations around the world.

The SNF funds organizations and projects, worldwide, that aim to achieve a broad, lasting and positive impact, for society at large, and exhibit strong leadership and sound management. The Foundation also supports projects that facilitate the formation of public-private partnerships as an effective means for serving public welfare.
