"The Headliner Among Sustainable Media nomination is particularly important at this time. We all know that the media is the fourth estate. Journalists have a great responsibility to shape public opinion. Who, if not them, can communicate the importance of sustainable development? I believe that it is necessary to honour everyone who embodies sustainable values in their work, because these people are the main drivers of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development"
