The Bright Award recognizes individual(s) who have made unheralded contributions to environmental sustainability. Each year, Stanford Law School will give the Bright Award to individual(s) working in a specific region of the world. The award winner receives $100,000 and delivers a public lecture at Stanford University.
This year’s recipients are Gidon Bromberg and Munqeth Mehyar, who are unparalleled environmental leaders and visionaries. Their work has been foundational in the field of environmental peacebuilding and their current projects are on the cutting edge, ambitiously tackling the world’s most difficult environmental, peace, and security challenges.
