What can you do to help the environment!

Why not…
  • 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?
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.

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...
