The Nobel Prize

With this toolkit, the Nobel Foundation and Swedish Institute give the Swedish embassies and consulates access to material produced by the public outreach entities of the Nobel Prize. This is exclusively shaped for the Swedish missions abroad to be able to reach out and arrange events locally.

In his last will, Alfred Nobel specifies that his fortune should be used for prizes “to those who, during the preceding year, have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind.” Since 1901, the Nobel Prize has rewarded outstanding achievements in the fields of science, literature and peace. Every year, as new laureates are announced, new stories of innovation, creativity and courage are added to the legacy of the Nobel Prize. The themes covered by the Nobel Prize and the stories of the laureates are the basis of a number of public outreach activities with the aim to spread knowledge, engage and inspire a global audience.

This toolkit gives Swedish embassies and Consulates General access to various resources related to the Nobel Prize encouraging learning and dialogue among a broad general public, as well as more specific target groups, such as teachers.

This toolkit consists of the following:

  1. The Nobel Prize Announcements 4-11 October 2021, social media plan.
  2. Nobel Prize Teacher Summit 2021, local event arranged by Swedish mission abroad.
  3. Nobel Week.

About

The Nobel Foundation, a private institution established in 1900, has ultimate responsibility for fulfilling the intentions in Alfred Nobel’s will. The main mission of the Nobel Foundation is to manage Alfred Nobel’s fortune in a manner that ensures a secure financial standing for the Nobel Prize over the long term and that the prize-awarding institutions are guaranteed independence in their work of selecting recipients. The Nobel Foundation has overall responsibility for the Nobel Week taking place in Stockholm in December.

The externally financed entities, in Sweden Nobel Prize Museum and Nobel Prize Outreach, have been developed with the aim to engage, inspire and spread knowledge about the Nobel Prize through various public activities, exhibitions, meetings, events and digital publishing.
