Goodhearted and Green
I was moved, motivated, and inspired this week by the grassroots environmental heroes who received the Goldman Environmental Prize in San Francisco on Monday evening. Such amazing stories of courageous people on a mission to make our earth a better place by going green. The Goldman Environmental Prize honors grassroots environmental heroes from the world’s six inhabited continental regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Islands & Island Nations, North America, and South & Central America. The Prize recognizes individuals for sustained and significant efforts to protect and enhance the natural environment, often at great personal risk. The Goldman Prize views “grassroots” leaders as those involved in local efforts, where positive change is created through community or citizen participation in the issues that affect them. Through recognizing these individual leaders, the Prize seeks to inspire other ordinary people to take extraordinary actions to protect the natural world.
