George Miller to Receive Environmental Media’s Lifetime Award

George Miller will be given the Environmental Media Assn. Lifetime Achievement Award Oct. 24.

From the first “Mad Max” in 1979 through this year’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Miller’s films often contain messages of eco-concerns. He will be presented the award by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who appears in “Fury Road,” which Miller directed, wrote and produced.

He joins the previously announced honorees: Don Henley (EMA Missions in Music Honoree), Gwyneth Paltrow (EMA Green Parent Award), Kristin Davis (EMA Wildlife Conservation  Award), Van Jones (EMA/Greenbiz Global Innovator Award), and Zem & James Joaquin (EMA Corporate Responsibility Award).

The event will take place at the Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank. Paltrow, Davis and the Joaquins are being saluted for their ongoing commitment in raising awareness of environmental issues and inspiring people to take action. Jones is receiving the organization’s inaugural EMA GreenBiz Global Innovator Award for his leadership, leading the efforts of the new green economy and environmental justice and moving them into tangible job creation.

Debbie Levin is president of the EMA. The non-profit organization was founded in 1989 by Cindy and Alan Horn and Lyn and Norman Lear. EMA is dedicated to harnessing the power of celebrity and the media to promote sustainable lifestyles and to inspire consumers to take action.
