Actor-environmentalist Dia Mirza says meeting Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin was a special moment.

Mirza hosted United Nations’s (UN) “Champions of the Earth” award with Baldwin.

“I have had the honour to host for the second year in a row the Champions of the Earth Awards, a truly motivating and inspiring platform that brings together some of the finest human beings on the planet,” Mirza said in a statement.

“To be able to host this year’s awards with Alec Baldwin made the experience all the more special,” added the UN Environment’s Goodwill Ambassador for India.

The awards were presented on September 26 in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also presented with the award. He dedicated it to India’s tradition of coexisting with nature.
