Here at the Goldman Prize, we know that the actions of one individual can make a big difference. Our Prize winners have taught us that when it comes to protecting the environment, there is no goal too big or too small to take on.
Last week, we asked Goldman Prize Facebook followers to share their green New Year’s resolutions for 2013. From being more mindful of what we eat to influencing policy change, Goldman Prize followers are ringing in a healthy and sustainable start to the New Year.
