Hildegard Breiner, Austria
2004 in Jaipur
Hildegard Breiner, today the Grande Dame of the environmental and anti-nuclear movement in Vorarlberg/Austria, earned her spurs as an activist over a quarter of a century ago - in the fight against Zwentendorf. To this day no nuclear power is produced in Austria because in 1978 the opponents of nuclear power won a referendum very narrowly over the government and the nuclear lobby. The Zwentendorf nuclear power plant was not allowed to be built any further. He received the honorary prize for his life's work.
