What a night!
Environmental supporters from around the world gathered at San Francisco’s War Memorial Opera House last night to celebrate the 2011 Goldman Environmental Prize recipients.
The evening started with a moving tribute to the Prize’s late founder, Richard Goldman, who passed away in November 2010. We dedicated the event to his memory. Following an introduction by master of ceremonies, Peter Coyote, John Goldman gave a keynote talk focused on the dismantling of environmental regulations by Congress and the changing economic landscape that is forcing business leaders to embrace sustainability and environmental protection. Then, one by one, we presented to six incredible Prize recipients.
We’ll post video from the ceremony in the next few days so that everyone can hear their inspiring words. In the meantime, visit our Facebook page to check out a gallery of photos from last night.
