Awards: Sydney Peace Prize

Canadian author and social activist Naomi Klein won Australia's A$50,000 (about US$37,705) Sydney Peace Prize, which honors public figures who "promote peace‚ justice‚ and non-violence‚" Quillblog reported.

The prize jury said Klein was recognized "for exposing the structural causes and responsibility for the climate crisis, for inspiring us to stand up locally, nationally and internationally to demand a new agenda for sharing the planet that respects human rights and equality, and for reminding us of the power of authentic democracy to achieve transformative change and justice."
