The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) recognized seven winners for its ‘Champions of the Earth Award’ at a ceremony in Singapore.

UNEP chief Achim Steiner, who presented the awards, said “If we are to shape a new partnership between human-kind and the natural environment upon which all life ultimately depends then we need leaders, we need champions – champions in public life, champions in business and champions in our communities.”
