Tällberg Foundation will select two modern-day leaders making positive societal change

2016-05-31

With more than thirty years under its belt, the Tällberg Foundation is a non-profit educational organization with offices in New York and Stockholm, Sweden. Last year, the jury awarded two prize winners: Jamila Afghani and Martín von Hildebrand for the work they are doing to improve the world around them. 
 
JAMILA AFGHANI
CEO of NECDO in Afghanistan
"I was completing my Master's classes in Pakistan when I heard that in a day 26 women and children died due to anger and hate. And that was the time we thought about what can we do for our people in such a difficult condition? Me with a group of other friends, we started campaigning, collecting clothes, medicine, food for those people who were living in the camps without a tent.”

Jamila is a women's rights activist from Afghanistan. She is the founder of Noor Educational and Capacity Development Organization (NECDO).

Founder, Fundacion Gaia Amazonas
"And I suddenly was struck that in the middle of the forest miles and miles away from everything. I had gotten completely away from the West. Here was the West exploiting these people and that really shocked me.”

Martín is an anthropologist and environmentalist who has led the efforts to secure indigenous territorial rights and the protection of the Colombian Amazon forest. 

Currently, the foundation is looking for two new leaders that can demonstrate the kind of leadership demanded by the challenges of modern-day society.

"When you work with a group of influential people..that is just like a drop of ink on a paper, then it will be spread out. FLASH We have learned that one drop is properly dropped down so it will expand.”

The Tällberg Foundation is open to men and women from all walks of life, religion and career paths to take part in discussion panels and promote their work on a global scale. The goal is simple: to seek better ways in which to correct social, political and ethical injustices. 

MARTIN VON HILDEBRAND
Founder, Fundacion Gaia Amazonas
"You have different types of leaders. You have intellectual leaders, you have administrative leaders, you have the ritual leader, you have the one that has a vision. And they are all the same and each one needs the other leader.”

Anyone from any country is eligible: artists, educators, politicians, scientists, and religious and military figures. The nomination process for 2016 will be open until June 10th. The prize ceremony is expected to take place in Amsterdam between November 15-17, 2016. The winners will also receive a $50,000 reward.
