Striving for Harmony and the Betterment of Humankind
The Lui Prize honours individuals and organisations whose work contributes to the development of a better and more harmonious world and aims to provide these laureates with the financial resources to continue their work and even expand its scope. Laureates can come from anywhere in the world and from any field of endeavour, and it is hoped they will also serve as role models for young people.
Since 2020, the Lui Prize has brought an additional focus to its work, aiming to make a meaningful difference at the local, as well as at the global, level. Through collaborations with partners in Hong Kong, support has been given to programmes which benefit local communities, particularly in the areas of education and youth development.
