Check out these informative videos that 2009 Goldman Prize recipient Yuyun Ismawati shared with us to find out more about the global issue of mercury pollution.
Ismawati was awarded the Goldman Prize in 2009 for her work to implement sustainable community-based waste and sanitation management programs in Indonesia that provide employment opportunities to low-income people and empower them to improve the environment.
In 2008, Ismawati became intrigued by mercury pollution in Indonesia and around the world. Today she is a leading advocate for stricter regulations to protect human and the environment from mercury pollution.
