We hope you enjoyed hearing the stories of the six winners of the 2016 Goldman Environmental Prize! On Wednesday April 20, the second ceremony of the week took place at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.
This year, we were delighted to welcome for the first time journalist and National Geographic adventurer Boyd Matson as our Master of Ceremonies. As per our San Francisco ceremony, our veteran narrator, Robert Redford generously provided the narration for the Prize winner profile videos.
We were also delighted to welcome staff from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the senior staff of members of congress. The embassies of Tanzania and Peru were also represented.
