“It’s a collaborative spirit. This is about educating and empowering people globally, especially the youth, to start acting now and understand that their environment and they have to start learning how to protect it. Education is going to be our greatest tool,” Somerhalder says. “Kids are fed up with the way the environment is being treated by people in power. We just have to give them the education and the tools to do something about it, and they will.”

He plans to work in collaboration with both Conservation International and Pew Charitable Trusts to encourage kids. “We’re going to be able able to put together contests and really cool educational trips for schools, whether it’s underprivileged or even over-privileged kids, rural or urban areas,” he explains. “I’m so stoked about this.”
