Goldman Environmental Prize
|Goldman Environmental Prize|
The Goldman Environmental Prize is a prize awarded annually to grassroots environmental activists, one from each of the world's six geographic regions: 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. 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. The award is given by the Goldman Environmental Foundation headquartered in San Francisco, California. It is also called the Green Nobel.
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.
In 2013, David Gordon became executive director of the foundation. The 2017 Environmental Prizes marking the 28th anniversary, were awarded on April 24, 2017 during ceremonies held at the San Francisco Opera House.
