AceShowbiz - Leonardo DiCaprio is now a Messenger of Peace for United Nations. His first duty as a spokesperson to raise awareness about climate change is addressing the opening of the U.N. summit where 120 world leaders are expected to attend later on September 23 in New York.
"Leonardo DiCaprio is not just one of the world's leading actors," U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said. "He has also a long-standing commitment to environmental causes, including through his foundation. His global stardom is the perfect match for this global challenge."
After his appointment, the actor issued a statement, "I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history - it is a moment for action. How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet."
