LUI Che Woo Prize – Prize for World Civilisation

The experience of hardship of Dr Lui Che-woo, Chairman of K. Wah Group, in his early life during the war paved the way for his later success. He cherishes the belief in “giving back to the society from which one has benefited”. Hence, he is determined to set up the LUI Che Woo Prize – Prize for World Civilisation (hereinafter called “the LUI Che Woo Prize” or “the Prize”).

The LUI Che Woo Prize is the first of its kind of international cross-sector award, honouring and recognizing individuals or organizations who have selflessly contributed to world civilisation with words and deeds.

The LUI Che Woo Prize aims to recognize and honour individuals or organizations all over the world with outstanding achievements and contributions in respect of the following three objectives:

Objective 1: Sustainable development of the world
This objective is to recognize an outstanding achievement of an individual or an organization in maintaining a sustainable ecological balance and natural capital on the one hand and providing for the needs of future generations on the other.

Objective 2: Betterment of the welfare of mankind
This objective is to acknowledge an outstanding effort of an individual or an organization to enhance the well-being of the human race.

Objective 3: Promotion of positive life attitude and enhancement of positive energy
This objective is to honour a model which can be an individual or an organization of unwavering determination demonstrated in the adoption of a positive attitude and making constructive changes in the face of setbacks, hardship and adversity.

There are three Prizes for the three objectives of the LUI Che Woo Prize (each a “Prize Category”) every year. If there is no appropriate awardee for any Prize Category in any particular year, no Prize will be awarded for that Prize Category in that year. Each awardee will receive a cash award of HK$20 million (equivalent to approximately US$2.56 million), a certificate and a trophy. Each Prize is awarded to a single recipient (i.e. no sharing of a Prize) who can be an individual or an organization.

Unlike other international prizes which have specific fields, the LUI Che Woo Prize is a new and prestigious international accolade awarded to individuals or organizations who have displayed remarkable achievements towards the three objectives of the Prize thereby contributing to world civilisation. Thus, the coverage of the LUI Che Woo Prize is very broad, the recipients not being limited to academics and scientists. The LUI Che Woo Prize recognizes accomplishments beneficial to mankind and also encourages the continuation of that work for which its laureates have been chosen. It transcends all boundaries of nations, it promotes universal values and it sows seeds for the continuous development of a better and harmonious world.
