For more than three decades the World Cultural Council has been recognizing individuals who have made exceptional achievements in science, education and the arts, within its overall aim of fostering tolerance, peace and fraternity across the planet.

The prizes are granted to those whose work is judged to have had a particularly positive impact on the cultural legacy of mankind. The Interdisciplinary Committee evaluates candidates nominated for its three awards (“Albert Einstein” for Science, “José Vasconcelos” for Education, and “Leonardo da Vinci” for the Arts). The high level of the jury, comprised of world-renowned, eminent individuals in the above fields, enhances the prestige of the awards.

„The World Cultural Council is committed to the recognition of achievements in scholarship, creativity and altruism. It believes that science, education and the arts hold the key to the future of humanity. They are the building blocks of culture“, said Professor Sir Colin Blakemore, President WCC.
