Nominate a person for the Michael Klug Award 2019

Take this opportunity to nominate a person who over the past 12 months has contributed towards the peaceful resolution of conflict in the best interests of the community.


About the Award

Working in support of the peaceful resolution of conflict in the community can be hard, frustrating and often exhausting. This is the complex work of navigating complex systems, multi-faceted influences and diverse party interests.

People who work on the coalface of conflict often do so with a great commitment to respect, empowerment and long-term change. They are usually too busy doing the work and don’t have time to share their success stories. They don’t do this work for praise; they do it for a passion to contribute to creating a more peaceful world.

The Michael Klug Award provides an important opportunity to reflect on the last 12 months and celebrate that individuals taking action can make a real difference. The Award is a chance:

  • to publicly recognise and value them

  • to say ‘thank you’

  • to support and encourage them in their work to influence change and create a more peaceful community

Awardees (selected from nominees) receive the following:

  • Formal presentation of the Award at a special or significant event
  • A cheque of AU$1,000.00
  • A feature of your story in our digital newsletter (Pulse) or equivalent
  • Opportunity to participate in a webinar

This Award is made possible through the generosity of Michael Klug AM.
