Presentation of the Gold Medal for Human Rights to Christiana Figueres
We were so honoured to award the Gold Medal for Human Rights to Christiana Figueres on 12 March in the Lord Mayor’s Reception Room at the Sydney Town Hall. Christiana gave an impassioned speech about the need for urgent action on the climate crisis, explaining how human rights and climate change are intimately linked.
Here are some of our favorite snaps from the event, courtesy of our photographer Robin Walton who photographed this event pro bono in support of the Foundation. An audio recording of the event is available below, and all photos are available online here
