MUMBAI: The Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio was awarded with the prestigious Clinton Global Citizen Award for his work to protect the environment.

Serving as the kickoff for the 10th annual Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York, the 8th annual Citizen Awards, honoured outstanding individuals in civil society, philanthropy, public service and the private sector who exemplify global citizenship through their vision, leadership and impact in addressing global challenges.

DiCaprio was presented his award by World Wildlife Fund CEO Carter Roberts, who said, "Now more than ever nature needs a voice. Leonardo DiCaprio is that voice."

Accepting the award, the Hollywood star said, “Climate change is compromising the very livability of our planet. DiCaprio also urged the audience of global leaders and philanthropists to put environmental issues at the forefront of the human agenda.

The evening was hosted by ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ host, Seth Meyers, and included performances from The Roots, Aloe Blacc, Natalie Merchant and Jason Mraz.

Earlier some 300,000 participants, including DiCaprio, alongside fellow environmental activists Edward Norton, Mark Ruffalo, Sting and Evangeline Lilly took to the streets in the largest march for climate change ever. DiCaprio will also be speaking at the UN Climate Summit this week.

Eva Longoria, Seth Meyers, Randy Jackson and Chelsea Clinton also attended the award ceremony.
