2020 Goldman Prize Winners to be Announced at Virtual Ceremony on November 30, 2020

August 11, 2020

Earlier this year, we made the extraordinary decision to postpone the announcement of the 2020 Goldman Environmental Prize. This unprecedented decision was not taken lightly; in our 30-year history, the Prize has been awarded each April, timed to coincide with Earth Day. 2020 has clearly been a year of firsts for all of us.

We are now very happy to share a new date: The 2020 Goldman Environmental Prize will be announced on Monday, November 30, in a virtual ceremony. We look forward to updating our community soon with specifics on how to participate in this first-of-its-kind online event.
