2022 Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prizes

ATHENS – They want to help law practitioners solve the real problems people face, to fight repression and report the truth in Russia, and to rethink how humans interact with wildlife with an eye to mitigate transmission of diseases between the two.

Meet the established leaders selected for the 2022 Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prizes, designed to recognize people whose work is original, courageous, and has the potential to improve life for people across national boundaries. The Prizes and leadership initiatives at the Tällberg Foundation are supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

“What each of the most serious challenges humanity faces—such as climate change, the erosion of democracy, unmet mental health needs, the risk of future pandemics—requires is sound, selfless leadership,” said SNF Co-President Andreas Dracopoulos. “SNF is proud to support the Prizes in recognizing leaders whose practical optimism unlocks human potential to meet these critical challenges.”

Anyone can make an online nomination for the Prize, and finalists were selected from 2,400 nominees hailing from 132 countries. Winners in the established leaders category, selected by jury, are awarded $50,000. Winners in the emerging leaders category will be announced next week.
