Marty Timeline

In celebration of his 80th birthday, former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev launched the “Man Who Changed the World” award — and named Marty as one of his inaugural nominees.  Founded by Green Cross International, the Gorbachev Foundation, the Nobel Peace Laureates Forum and the New Policy Forum, the Mikhail Gorbachev “Man Who Changed the World” awards recognize people who have changed the world, and will continue to do so.

Along with Marty, 2011 Gorbachev award nominees include Ted Turner, Sir Timothy Berners-Lee, Sergey Brin, Stephen Spielberg, Jurgen Habermas, Bono, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Evans Wadongo.  Berners-Lee, Turner and Wadongo won the prize.
