Eilish, an Academy Award and Grammy Award-winning artist, and Maggie Baird will be honored with the EMA Missions in Music Award. They join an extensive list of ability and fellow environmental activists recognized by EMA throughout the years including Willie Nelson, Adam Levine, Don Henley, Diane Warren, Alanis Morissette, and Dave Mathews. EMA will recognize the mother and daughter for their work as role models for practical ways of behaving, incorporating initiatives present in Eilish’s current“Happier Than Ever” world tour.

Eilish and Maggie Baird made “Overheated,” which hosts climate-focused activities like clothing swaps, documentary screenings, and veganism talks to communicate issues around sustainability. It was organized in collaboration with Baird’s cause Support + Feed, which makes progress toward addressing food insecurity and the climate emergency with plant-based food.

“I’m thrilled to accept the EMA Missions in Music Award this year alongside my daughter,” Maggie Baird said in a statement. “I’m so proud that Billie uses her voice to inspire a younger audience and advocate for change. It’s a dream come true that Billie and I share the same passion for tackling the climate crisis. We are stronger together and I know that she’ll continue to make a tremendous impact on this Earth for the next generation.”

In addition to Eilish and Maggie Baird, actor and long-standing EMA board member Nikki Reed will be honored with the 2022 EMA Innovator Award for BaYou With Love, her eco-friendly lifestyle and jewelry brand. The brand focuses on sustainable, ethical fashion and production, conscious sourcing and supporting local artisans, and working toward zero waste.
