The Goldman Environmental Prize is a prize awarded annually to grassroots environmental activists, one from each of the world's six geographic regions:[1] Africa, Asia, Europe, Islands and Island Nations, North America, and South and Central America. The prize includes a no-strings-attached award of US$175,000 per recipient.[1] Since the prize was established in 1989, a total of $15.9 million has been awarded to 157 people from more than 79 countries, as of 2013.[1] The award is given by the Goldman Environmental Foundation headquartered in San Francisco, California.[1] It is also called the Green Nobel.[2]

The Goldman Environmental Prize was created in 1990 by civic leaders and philanthropists Richard N. Goldman and his wife, Rhoda H. Goldman.[1]

The winners are selected by an international jury who receive confidential nominations from by a worldwide network of environmental organizations and individuals. Prize winners participate in a 10-day tour of San Francisco and Washington, D.C., for an awards ceremony and presentation, news conferences, media briefings and meetings with political, public policy, financial and environmental leaders.[3]

In 2013, David Gordon became executive director of the foundation.[4] The 2017 Environmental Prizes marking the 28th anniversary, were awarded on April 24, 2017 during ceremonies held at the San Francisco Opera House.[5]
