Thank you for all those great applications from around the world that reached us at Rapunzel in the Allgäu region in Southern Germany! For us it is very encouraging to see how many wonderful people and projects from around the world are involved to give globalization a positive edge. The international Rapunzel jury will meet in Germany in the end of April 2017 in order to determine the OWA winners.
A total of five winners will be selected from the nominations. The OWA award will be presented in a festive gala on the occasion of the Rapunzel ONE WORLD Festival from September 8 through 10, 2017 in Legau at the Rapunzel headquarters. The OWA award is endowed with 45,000 Euro and honors people who work to make the world a better place ecologically, economically and socially.

This encouragement award honours extraordinary people for their commitment and actions. The international laureates are activists or pioneers in areas of economy, ecology or social matters.
