April 22, 2014

With the 2014 Goldman Prize ceremony less than a week away, the Prize team is busy putting the finishing touches on what is sure to be a spectacular 25th anniversary celebration.

We are excited to announce that award-winning journalist and news anchor Soledad O’Brien will be this year’s Master of Ceremonies. She will be joined on stage by special guest speaker Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and two surprise musical guests.

In addition to honoring the 2014 Goldman Prize recipients, we will be acknowledging Robert Redford, who has been narrating the Goldman Prize recipient profile videos for over ten years.

Attendance to the Goldman Prize ceremony is by invitation only, but this year- for the first time ever- we are broadcasting the ceremony LIVE on the Goldman Prize YouTube channel. Be sure to tune in on Monday, April 28th at 5:30 PM (Pacific Time) for your chance to catch all the surprises and inspiration.
