The Pacific Climate Warriors are the winners of the Pax Christi International Peace Prize 2020.
On making the judgment, the members of the Pax Christi International board acknowledged the “admirable leadership shown by young people” on this critical issue.
The award tribute said: “[The board members] also want to draw attention to the region of Oceania, a beautiful part of the world which is too often overlooked.
“The brave, nonviolent and tenacious actions of the Pacific Climate Warriors are to be applauded and encouraged.”
The Pacific Media Centre’s Del Abcede was on hand to capture the international presentation this week at St Columba Centre, Ponsonby, Auckland, in Aotearoa New Zealand.
