2010 Goldman Environmental Prize Ceremony in San Francisco
"The Goldman Prize amplifies the voices of these grassroots leaders and provides them with:
•International recognition that enhances their credibility
•Worldwide visibility for the issues they champion
•Financial support of $150,000 to pursue their vision of a renewed and protected environment"
After the ceremony, there was a brief youth ceremony in which a poetry group called Youth Speaks performed a poem. It was very neat! There was a reception for youth following the event, but we didn't stay.
The event was interesting, inspiring and informational! For more information, visit the website at http://www.goldmanprize.org/
