Goldman Environmental Prize recipient Marina Rikhvanova dedicates her life to protecting human and environmental health from the harmful impacts of the Russian government’s petroleum and nuclear projects. As co-chair and co-founder of Baikal Environmental Wave, Rikhvanova led a successful, four-year campaign against an oil pipeline project that risked polluting Siberia’s Lake Baikal, a significant ecological and cultural site. She continues to mobilize Russians against nuclear development through public protests and citizen training camps. Photo credit: Goldman Environmental Prize
