Leonardo DiCaprio Shows Trailer for Climate Change Documentary Before the Flood at U.N. Headquarters in NYC

United Nations

Leonardo DiCaprio is playing his part as a U.N. Messenger of Peace for climate change.

The 41-year-old actor spoke at the United Nations on Friday on the importance of saving the climate for future generations.

The actor previewed a new trailer for his documentary film Before the Flood, which he executive produced.

DiCaprio also appeared with other U.N. Messengers of Peace, such as animal rights activist Jane Goodall, actor Michael Douglas and singer Stevie Wonder.

The U.N. recently released a powerful video from their refugee agency, UNHCR, that enlisted several Hollywood heavyweights to help raise awareness of refugees’ plight.

Cate Blanchett – who is a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and has visited refugees in Lebanon and Jordan – was one among several actors who starred in the video.

“For me, certainly, having visited the refugees in the environments which they have found themselves, it’s very humbling,” she explained, “because you realize there’s a lot of similarities between the things they value and the things I value and perhaps the things that people who have never met a refugee value.”
