International Bremen Peace Award

the Threshold Foundation will award the International Bremen Peace Award for exemplary commitments to Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation for the fifth time.

With this award we want to honour people and organizations that set an example through their work contributing to reconciliation, human rights, overcoming of racism, preservation of Creation as well as to intercultural and inter-religious understanding.

Awards will be given in three categories to individuals or organizations during a public ceremony at the Bremen Town Hall. The awards are endowed with a total amount of 15000 Euros, i.e. 5000 Euros in each category. Moreover, an award brochure will be published presenting other outstanding personalities and projects selected from a wide range of proposals. Thereby, we seek to draw public attention to remarkable achievements of dedicated people worldwide. Award brochures are available in English and German.

Award for the Unknown Peace Worker (category A)

Award for Exemplary Organizations (category B)
In this category awards will be given to initiatives or organizations that contribute to the goals of the Threshold Foundation in an outstanding manner.

Award for Public Engagement (category C)
