Robert Redford narrates this Emmy Award-winning series featuring inspiring portraits of six passionate and dedicated activists. These are true environmental heroes who have placed themselves squarely in harm's way to battle intimidating adversaries while building strong grassroots support. These “new environmentalists” share a common goal - safeguarding the earth's natural resources from exploitation and pollution, while fighting for justice in their communities. They are the six winners of the San Francisco-based Goldman Environmental Prize,
recognizing grass roots environmental activists from around the world.
