The Nobel Prize

The Nobel Prize

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. Expert visit to Stockholm for Nobel Prize Summit in September 2022.
  2. The Nobel Prize Announcements, social media plan.
  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.

The Swedish monarchy (Arabic)

The Swedish monarchy (Arabic)

The Swedish Royal Family is one of the oldest royal families in the world, yet regarded as the world’s most modern by many. In 1980, Sweden became the first monarchy to change its succession rites so that the first-born child of the monarch is heir to the throne, regardless of gender. Ambitious and with charm to spare, Crown Princess Victoria seems more than ready for the task.

INTRO 4 min – Bergman Through the Choreographer’s Eye

Four of Sweden’s most innovative choreographers travel to Ingmar Bergman’s home on Fårö to explore and get inspired. The result is a unique contemporary dance film and this is the introduction film.

The renowned Swedish choreographers Alexander Ekman, Pär Isberg, Pontus Lidberg and Joakim Stephenson, with principal dancers Jenny Nilson, Natalie Nordquist, Oscar Salomonsson and Nadja Sellrup from the Royal Swedish Ballet, interpret Ingmar Bergman through four unique dance performances reflecting on human relations and intense feelings. The dances are linked together with images of the epic natural beauty of Fårö and Bergman’s poetic home Hammars, including the voice of the master himself – Ingmar Bergman – revealing his thoughts about movements and music.

Raoul Wallenberg exhibition

To me there’s no other choice

To me there’s no other choice

The exhibition toolkit ‘To me there’s no other choice’ presents Swedish diplomat and businessman Raoul Wallenberg (1912-1947), widely recognized for helping save tens of thousands of Jews from the Holocaust during his diplomatic posting in Budapest.

Chronologically describing Wallenberg’s early childhood and education and leading up to his mysterious disappearance in 1945 via his often dramatic and painstaking rescue actions in war-stricken Budapest, the exhibition is meant as a platform for dialogue on issues concerning tolerance, democracy and moral courage. The main target groups are students and teachers.

The exhibition can of course also be used as a long-term backdrop exhibit.

The exhibition was initially produced in close collaboration with the Living History Forum and launched in conjunction with the centennial anniversary of Raoul Wallenberg’s birth in 2012.

To me there’s no other choice is part of SI’s specially adapted toolkits focusing on human rights and democracy, e.g. the Cube project, Welcome to Electionville and the Young courage award.
