The 2015 Goldman Environmental Prize awards were announced today in San Francisco on the Goldman Youtube channel. The six environmental activists who are being recognized with this year’s prize come from Kenya, Myanmar, Scotland, Haiti, Canada, and Honduras.
“Awarded annually to environmental heroes from each of the world’s six inhabited continental regions, the Goldman Prize recognizes fearless grassroots activists working against all odds to protect the environment and their communities. They often work in countries where violence and death threats against environmental defenders are on the rise.”
