Sydney Peace Prize Events
Every year the awarding of the Prize is celebrated in Sydney through various events. This offers the public a chance to hear the recipient speak at the City of Sydney Peace Prize Lecture, and to partake in celebrations at the Sydney Peace Prize Dinner.
The Sydney Peace Foundation invites the Australian public to be inspired by each recipient’s message and story, and to celebrate his or her achievements in the struggle for peace, justice, respect for human rights and the nonviolent solution of conflicts.
The Foundation does this through two premier annual events, the City of Sydney Peace Prize Lecture and the Sydney Peace Prize Dinner. Some years the Prize has been presented at the Dinner, other years it has been presented at the Lecture.
