Alternative Nobel Winners Bring Hope to 'Challenged Planet'

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The 2015 Right Livelihood Awards, also known as the "alternative Nobels," recognized individuals—including one country's entire population—who presented solutions to human rights crises around the world.

Those honors went to Canadian Inuit activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier; Ugandan LGBTI rights activist Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera; and Italian war surgeon Gino Strada. An honorary Right Livelihood Award also went to Tony de Brum, a Marshall Islands government minister, as well as the people of the Marshall Islands.
