Award Recipients

In 2003, Primatologist Jane Goodall received Harvard’s annual Global Environmental Citizen Award. Goodall founded a program called “Take Care,” aimed at creating microcredit banks and educating conservation methods to inhabitants near the forest and national park. [2]

In 2004, the award was given to Journalist Bill Moyers who has created discussion around the relation between the environment and various political trends, such as the discourse between environmental policy and religious right.[3] Moyers’s acceptance made a connection between the rising Christian fundamentalism movement and environmental policies of the post-Columbine era.[3]

Al Gore, the 45th Vice President of the United States was the 2005 award recipient.[4] Al Gore has long voiced his interests in the role of technology in environmental issues—from biomedical and genetic engineering to the socio-ecological effects of greenhouse gases.[5]

In 2007, Charles, Prince of Wales was presented with the Global Environmental Citizen Award for his work towards preserving the environment.[6] In 1990, Charles prince started Duchy Originals, a company dedicated in providing small farmers new markets to sell their goods and delivering high-quality organic goods through more sustainable production methods.[4] Since then, Duchy Originals has rapidly grown to profit more than £1 million annually, becoming one of the most well-known and prosperous natural brands in the United Kingdom.[4] For decades, the prince has voiced concerns about the dangerous risks of genetically modified foods, advocated for research into chemical farming and its effects on human health, launched numerous development projects in rural communities, and fostered corporate responsibility toward the environment.[4] The prince has actively called for the improvement of energy efficiency and reduction of toxic discharge.[7] In his award speech, the prince addressed the role of the British government in recognizing climate change as an upmost global priority.[6]

In 2008, Kofi Annan and Alice Waters received the Award for their contributions to sustainable living and agricultural production.[8] Kofi Annan has led the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment as Secretary-General of the United Nations, served as the President of the Global Humanitarian Forum and now serves as Chair of the Alliance for Africa’s Green Revolution.[8] Alice Waters, founder of Chez Panisse Foundation, has established an organic classroom, The Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley, California, providing a space for students of all ages to tend land, harvest their crops and prepare food fresh from the garden.[8] As a chef, Waters has long advocated for sustainably produced local goods and empowerment of youth through educational food programs.[8]
