OBSERVARE Prizes

OBSERVARE decided to establish an award to pay tribute to individuals or organizations that have stood out due to intellectual creativity or relevant practice in their contribution to the understanding of international realities, solidarity among peoples and the peaceful resolution of conflicts.

This initiative aims to extend university practice to the positive movements that permeate our world and complement scientific studies through the exercise of cosmopolitan citizenship.

The prize is a small sculpture inspired by the logo of OBSERVARE: a pyramid-shaped piece that evokes the ziggurats of ancient Mesopotamia, which were places of worship and for observing large areas. The author of this sculpture is Architect João Pancada Correia, Director of UAL, who has a long tradition of artistic interventions.
