Joydeep Gupta, Director of EJN’s Third Pole Project, was honored at the 4th edition of The Green Globe Foundation Awards that took place at the Delhi Sustainable Development Summit (DSDS) 2012.

Joydeep was honored for “his contribution on campaigning on behalf of Mother Earth and contributing to the environmental issues through his sustained write-ups in the media.” The Green Globe Awards are given to outstanding green campaigners – people as diverse as businessmen, politicians and athletes – for their contributions to the environmental cause.

An environmental journalist since 1984, when he covered the Bhopal gas leak disaster in India, Gupta was a Climate Change Media Partnership Fellow in 2008. He became Director of the Third Pole Project in 2010 and continues to train, educate and report on environmental issues.

“I care about the kind of reporting that honestly and fully informs people about their lives and the world around them,” said Gupta. “This award and the many friendly messages I received after it make me feel that that there are lots and lots of people around the world who care about the same thing.”
