The 2021-22 Sydney Peace Prize winner is The Uluru Statement from the Heart.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart is an invitation to the Australian people to walk with First Nations people to create a better future. It is a gift: a strategic roadmap to peace, where all Australians can come together to realise our nation’s true potential.
