Two men from very different worlds, the Russian Alexei Yablokov and the American Francis Macy. Yablokov, founder and president of the Center for Russian Environmental Policy, and Macy, one of the directors of the NGO Tri-Valley CARE, have been working closely together since 1991 and founded the Nuclear Watchdog Network, a coalition of grassroots organizations that monitor nuclear facilities in Russia and Ukraine. They received the honorary award for their life's work.
