Disobedience Award


: Democracy & Government


The Award is administered by the MIT Media Lab to recognize individuals and groups who engage in responsible, ethical disobedience aimed at challenging norms, rules, or laws that sustain society’s injustices. The Award honors work that positively impacts society, and is consistent with a set of key principles, including nonviolence, creativity, courage, and personal responsibility. The Award is given to a person or group engaged in what the Lab believes is an extraordinary example of disobedience for the benefit of society. It is open to people and groups working in any discipline, including, but not limited to, scientific research, civil rights, freedom of speech, human rights, and the freedom to innovate. By rewarding thoughtful, nonviolent acts of disobedience, they hope to raise the public profile of the activities and ultimately inspire new agents of change. Recipients must be living and/or currently operational at the time of nominations. Self-nominations are not accepted. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
