We are thrilled to report that three Goldman Environmental Prize winners have been selected to serve as Climate Trailblazers for the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) taking place in San Francisco, September 12-14, 2018. Hammer Simwinga (Zambia, 2007), Feliciano dos Santos (Mozambique, 2008), and Howard Wood (Scotland, 2015) will take part in the Summit and affiliated events throughout the week, sharing their work and perspectives on climate change, sustainability, and making an impact where they live.
The Summit, initiated by California Governor Jerry Brown, will bring together a broad array of environmental leaders and activists with the goal of galvanizing the global movement for climate action.
