Wangari Maathai: 1991 Goldman Prize winner, Kenya

Wangari Maathai launched the Green Belt Movement, a grassroots tree-planting project composed mainly of women working to curtail deforestation and desertification in Kenya. Won the 2004 Nobel Prize.

The Goldman Environmental Prize is the world's largest prize for grassroots environmentalists. Each of the winners, chosen from the planet's six inhabited continental regions, demonstrate exceptional courage and commitment, often working at great risk to protect our environment. In the process, they inspire the rest of us to do the same.
