Careers in Science

Goldman Environmental Awards

 

Every year, three men and three women from around the world are honored for their outstanding work in the field of environmental justice and conservation at the Goldman Environmental Awards. Last training, the interns were in attendance at this prestigious event, and this was not the first time. Over the years, the intern program has been invited several times, along with other youth groups to attend the Goldman Awards.

Being a program that specializes in training youth for science careers, the CiS program felt right at home amongst all of these hard-working, successful conservationists. Many of the interns felt personally inspired by the accomplishments of this wide group of honorees. Just as the intern program represents a diverse group of youth, the recipients of the Goldman Award represent a diverse group of conservationists.

The successes of the Goldman winners were varied and awe-inspiring. From Randall Arauz’s campaign of halting Shark fin removal in his home country of Costa Rica to Malgorzata Gorska’s legal battle of stopping a highway project through an untouched forest.

With such achievement from these worthy role-models, who knows what the interns will be spurred on to do in the future?
