Billie Eilish will receive the Missions in Music Award at the Environmental Media Association Awards.
The Environmental Media Association announced on Monday that singer Happier Than Ever – along with her mother Maggie Baird – will receive the EMA Missions in Music Award at the organization’s ceremony on October 8.
Taking place in Los Angeles, the celebration honors people who are globally recognized for their work to protect the planet.
Billie and Maggie will be rewarded for Overheated, an event organized in conjunction with Maggie’s Support + Feed charity. The event hosted climate-focused activities and raised funds to support the charity’s efforts to tackle food insecurity and the climate crisis.
“I am thrilled to accept the EMA Missions in Music Award this year alongside my daughter,” Maggie said of the honor in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m so proud that Billie is using her voice to inspire younger audiences and advocate for change. It’s a dream come true that Billie and I share the same passion for tackling the climate crisis.
“We are stronger together and I know she will continue to have a huge impact on this Earth for the next generation.”
Nikki Reed, actress and board member of the Environmental Media Association, will also be honored at the ceremony. Nikki will receive the EMA Innovator Award, recognizing her work with eco-conscious jewelry and lifestyle brand BaYou With Love.
