Environmental Media Association Awards to Honor Shailene Woodley

By Joshua Terry

LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - "Snowden" star Shailene Woodley will be feted next month by the Environmental Media Association for her activism on climate change and other issues.

The 26th annual Environmental Media Association Awards will honor Woodley with the Female EMA Futures Award for her involvement in social and environmental issues, including the recent protests over the Dakota Pipeline Access project in North Dakota.

"A strong proponent of climate change and individual responsibility, we couldn't be more proud to honor and share this young woman's authentic commitment and 'boots on the ground' rallying for social and environmental justice issues," said Debbie Levin, CEO of EMA.

"We must stand in solidarity and acknowledge our responsibility for not only those alive now, but for all generations to come," said Woodley. "Protecting our Earth and its creatures is protecting humanity and its children. This EMA Futures Award shows me that there are millions of us who have been and are ready to stand up in the face of adversity and honor the home that has offered us the lives we know."

Woodley, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in "The Descendants," just wrapped production on HBO's "Big Little Lies," which will premiere next year.

The EMA Awards will be held Oct. 22 on the Warner Bros. lot.
