Leonardo DiCaprio Gets UN Messenger of Peace Honor
Leonardo DiCaprio shakes hands with the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Saturday evening (September 20) in New York City.
The 39-year-old actor was there to be named the new UN Messenger of Peace and receive a special certificate to mark the honor.
“I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history – it is a moment for action,” Leo said in a statement earlier in the week. “How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.”
