From the remote Cook Islands to the lush rainforests of Brazil to the great cities of China, the geographic and cultural diversity of Goldman Environmental Prize winners is profound. All 194 recipients, who hail from 89 different countries, are united by their character: courage, persistence, compassion, love for community, and deep passion for the natural environment. After 30 years, we are often asked what past Prize winners are doing today: Where are they now? Are they well? What are they working on?
In response, we are thrilled to launch our Prize Winners Today series on Tuesday, July 21. Each month, we’ll be catching up with a past Prize winner. We’ll cover topics like wildlife protection, environmental justice, and climate change. We’ll discuss their opinions on current issues facing our planet. And, most importantly, we’ll continue to bring you the stories of these extraordinary human beings who dared to fight and protect the environment.
