Ed Norton has delighted audiences on the silver screen for more than two decades. His roles in films like Fight Club, The Incredible Hulk, Frida, and Primal Fear – for which he was nominated for an Academy Award – have distinguished him as one of Hollywood’s most talented and versatile actors.
Now, he’s turning his attention to another sphere – development and conservation. In July this year he was named a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for Biodiversity. In that role Ed Norton has been working to ensure world leaders take appropriate measures to protect the environment.
One of his top priorities as Goodwill Ambassador will be to increase “people’s focus on the fact that human well-being is intertwined fundamentally with biodiversity.”
At the ongoing UN General Assembly Conference, the biodiversity crisis will be an issue the 192-member body will focus on.
What would you like to ask Ed Norton about this issue? What would you like to ask him about his acting work, and why he’s taking up biodiversity as a cause now?
