What can you do to help the environment!Why not…
These are just a couple things the winners of this year's
Goldman Environmental Prizes have done. What is the Goldman Environmental Prize? Each
year one "environmental hero" is chosen from each of six continental
regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Island Nations, North America and
South/Central America. The winners get $125,000 and a lot of
attention for their causes.
- Expose environmental violations by the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank?
- Save a rain forest by promoting the incredible medicines that are found only in that rain forest?
- Form your own organization to take on huge corporations
who are ruining your farm land?
While we (the World Trek Team Members) didn't get to meet with these
great people, our friends who help coordinate our efforts in San Francisco
did, and now you can meet them, right here! We've got their stories and
some great video.
So the next time you're free on a Friday night, or wondering
what to do with the weekend, or aren't sure what you want to do when you
graduate, think about what these people are doing, and go out and do some
of it yourself!
And the 2000 winners are...
