Los Angeles, Sep 23 (IANS) Actress Shailene Woodley will be feted by the Environmental Media Association for her activism on climate change and other issues next month.

Talking about the award, Woodley said: “We must stand in solidarity and acknowledge our responsibility for not only those alive now, but for all generations to come.”
