The Green Nobel Prize

If you look for it, as fast as you hear depressing news you can find good news about amazing people doing wonderful things. Did you know that since 1989 there has been a ‘Green Nobel Prize’? Here are details from the BBC website:

Richard Goldman, founder of the “green Nobel prize”, says it is vital to recognise the efforts of grassroots activists. In this week’s Green Room, he explains why he believes some of the world’s most powerful people could learn a lesson or two from the winners of the Goldman Environmental Prize.

As governments around the world struggle with the crushing economic downturn and increasingly scarce natural resources, leaders at the grassroots level are continuing the critical work that often goes unnoticed, promoting environmental health, civil society, and reform in the face of great hardship.
