April 5, 2013

Today we are spotlighting a few Goldman Prize winners that will be attending the 2013 Goldman Prize ceremonies in San Francisco and Washington, DC. We love seeing past Prize recipient sharing such a special night with the newest additions to the Goldman Prize family.

This year, we look forward to seeing 2012 Prize recipient Caroline Cannon, an Inupiat from the native Alaskan Village of Point Hope. Cannon was awarded the Prize for her efforts to prevent oil and gas drilling in the Arctic, insisting that oil companies are not prepared for the harsh conditions of working in the Arctic. Cannon will be attending the San Francisco ceremony.
