The need for al­tru­ism is greater than ever, said Lui Che-woo, chair­man of the K Wah Group, in an­nounc­ing a HK$60 mil­lion an­nual prize to mark the group’s 60th an­niver­sary. By at­tract­ing the world’s bright­est minds to solve some of its most fun­da­men­tal prob­lems, he hopes the Lui Che­woo Prize for World Civ­i­liza­tion will “de­liver well-be­ing to peo­ple and cre­ate the con­di­tions where good and har­mony thrive.” More than 1,000 in­sti­tu­tions have been in­vited to sub­mit nom­i­na­tions in three ar­eas: sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment, wel­fare of mankind, and the pro­mo­tion of pos­i­tive life at­ti­tude. The first three win­ners will be named late next year and will re­ceive HK$20 mil­lion each.
