Hey, it may not be a Nobel prize, but Ian Somerhalder is receiving a prestigious honor of a different sort. The actor and activist will be the first recipient of the “World of Good” award at the Carmel Art and Film Festival on October 15.

The award, created by jewelry company Tiffany, is set to become an annual prize honoring “an influential actor, filmmaker or artist who is using their notoriety to ‘do good work.'” Somerhalder was chosen as the first recipient because of his commitment to the environment and his work to get youth involved in saving the planet.

A vocal activist for all things green, Somerhalder has his own organization dedicated to environmental projects, and the Ian Somerhalder Foundation is particularly adept at reaching younger generations, by utilizing social media and hosting contests and events specifically geared toward kids age 13 and under.

According to Pitchengine.com, Somerhalder’s team “views the environment as an interconnected organism where there should be no differentiation between all living things: trees, rivers, animals and humans. Somerhalder challenges all like-minded organizations to work together to find sustainable solutions to our environmental problems.”

Somerhalder will receive the award at the festival’s Founder’s Party, which is not open to the public. However, the festival itself is, and is a five-day event featuring films, concerts, exhibitions, auctions and more. For more information, head over to the Carmel Art and Film Festival website.
