Following in the footsteps of previous award recipients like Angelina Jolie, George Clooney and Sean Penn, the Cinema for Peace Foundation announced today that Sting and Trudie Styler will be honored for their environmental work.

Through their Rainforest Fund organization, the power couple has worked for decades and raised over $30M to help protect rainforests and their indigenous peoples all around the world. Tomorrow evening’s event, a collaboration between Cinema for Peace New York and and the BMZ, Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, will focus on climate change and sustainable development.

“The mission of the Rainforest Fund is to protect the rainforest and the rights of indigenous peoples. Through its work the Fund has played a decisive role in improving the concrete living conditions of many people – and it has made these topics part of the mainstream in industrialised societies. That is the tremendous achievement of the Fund’s founders Sting and Trudie Styler,” says State Secretary Hans-Jürgen Beerfeltz, of Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. “Moving forward, the BMZ is going to be supporting and cooperating with the Rainforest Fund too, because we share the same goals.”

The BMZ will also formally announce support for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation; which focuses on initiatives not only related to the environment, but also species conservation.
