Goldman Environmental Prize Ceremony

The Goldman Environmental Prize is the world's largest award honoring grassroots environmental activists. The Goldman Environmental Prize ceremony is held at the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House every April, followed by a ceremony in Washington, D.C. two days later. Both events are by invitation only.

More than 3,000 people attend the always packed, emotion-filled event. The ceremony features short documentary films to provide an introduction to the Prize recipients and their accomplishments. The Goldman family presents the recipients with their Ouroboros statuettes, following the recipients’ address to the audience.

The celebration continues at a reception at San Francisco City Hall featuring organic and seasonal ingredients. Every effort is made to compost and recycle all refuse, keeping the celebration as sustainable as possible.

You can’t buy the tickets. Strickly by invitation only for those changing the world…and WildPlaces qualifies to receive 19 tickewts this year. We will be organizing an overnighter in SF and welcome youth and their parents to attend with us. Ride with us or meet us down there. The only qualification is to answer this question:

“If you were one of the winners of the Prize, for what would you receive the award and why do the project?”
