On October 13, UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability will host their annual gala. This year’s virtual event will honor Environmental Activist Amariyanna Copeny, aka Mari or “Little Miss Flint” and actor, musician and activist Jaden Smith for their work to protect the environment.
The gala will be hosted by Harrison Ford and will feature guest appearances by: Al Gore, Issa Rae, Shonda Rhimes, Ed Sheeran, James Marsden, Misty Copeland, Bill Nye, with additional guests to be announced. The show will also feature performances by Sting and his son Joe Sumner; Courteney Cox, Coco Arquette and Natasha Bedingfield; and Leslie Odom Jr. and his wife Nicolette Robinson.
The gala will highlight four current UCLA graduate students, featuring their ongoing research and the university’s efforts to educate rising leaders from all backgrounds and make sure communities most impacted by climate change and environmental degradation have a prominent role in generating solutions. Marilyn Raphael, the university’s first female and Black director of the IoES, will also speak about overcoming global environmental problems by providing equitable solutions for minority communities who are disproportionately negatively affected by climate change.
Past honorees have included: Al Gore, Van Jones, Jeff Skoll, Ted Sarandos, Barbra Streisand, Gisele BŁndchen, Paul Allen, Eric and Wendy Schmidt, Keely and Pierce Brosnan, and Lyn and Norman Lear. Past musical performers include Lauryn Hill, CeeLo Green and Jackson Browne, and past guests include Jane Fonda, Goldie Hawn, Rosario Dawson, Moby, Ellen Pompeo and numerous others.
All proceeds from the event will benefit UCLA’s IoES, its graduate students, and their work.
