34th Annual Global Media Award Winners
Population Institute | 12-18-2013
The Population Institute today is pleased to announce the winners of the 34th annual Global Media Awards competition. The recipients made a significant contribution to public discussion and understanding of population and family planning related issues. The Population Institute is proud to recognize these individuals and news outlets for their journalistic excellence and valuable insights.
Carmen Barroso of International Planned Parenthood Federation Western Hemisphere and Michael Brune of the Sierra Club will receive the award for Best Opinion Piece for “Women at the Center of a Sustainable World.” Their blog, which was published by the Huffington Post on World Population Day, connects the dots between women’s health, environmental sustainability, and population growth. The blog, which highlights the many environmental benefits associated with advances in reproductive health and rights, brings together two important constituencies in support of family planning and gender equality: environmentalists and women’s rights supporters.
