We aim to expand the mind, broaden the heart, and sharpen the analysis. Have a great Sunday.
I have been inspired over the years with the winners of the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize. When I worked in the non-profit sector, these people were a source of inspiration. And now working on the business side of the equation, they are a source of innovation. And they are a poignant reminder of the stakeholders businesses will continue to collide with when they exploit natural resources.
The ceremony was just held a couple of weeks ago...
"The Goldman Environmental Prize honors grassroots environmental heroes from the world’s six inhabited continental regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Islands & Island Nations, North America, and South & Central America. The Prize recognizes individuals for sustained and significant efforts to protect and enhance the natural environment, often at great personal risk.
The Goldman Prize views 'grassroots' leaders as those involved in local efforts, where positive change is created through community or citizen participation in the issues that affect them. Through recognizing these individual leaders, the Prize seeks to inspire other ordinary people to take extraordinary actions to protect the natural world."
