Detailed Information:
Free Goldman Prize Booklets AvailableGoldman Prize winners often are literal and figurative “voices in the wilderness,” men and women from isolated villages and inner cities who are willing to take great personal risks to safeguard the environment. The Prize legitimizes the voices of these grassroots champions and provides them with: international recognition that enhances their credibility,worldwide visibility for the issues they champion, and financial support to pursue their vision of a renewed and protected environment.Teachers may use the stories of Goldman Prize winners to educate, inspire and motivate students to take a more active role in their environment. The Goldman Prize has also been the subject of a television special entitled, "Heroes of the Earth" which is available for loan from the Goldman Environmental Foundation library.See http://www.goldmanprize.org for more information.
