Jason Momoa, the iconic Aquaman actor, is more than just a Hollywood star; he's a devoted father and a passionate environmentalist. At 44, Momoa uses his platform to advocate for a sustainable future, a message he is keen to pass on to his children.

His latest effort, the premiere of the documentary "Common Ground," highlights the critical need for sustainable and eco-friendly farming practices. In a heartfelt conversation with PEOPLE, Momoa shared insights into his role as a father.

He emphasized the importance of instilling environmental consciousness in his two children, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo, 15, and Lola Iolani, 16, whom he shares with ex Lisa Bonet. Momoa's approach is hands-on and proactive, as he introduced "Common Ground" to their school.

He fervently wished for the next generation, including his children, to elevate their commitment to environmentalism.

Parenting and Resilience

Momoa's recent appearance on the cover of Men's Health's May/June 2023 issue further showcased his dedication as a father.

He spoke candidly about teaching his children life lessons through rock climbing, emphasizing resilience and embracing challenges. "It's okay to fall. You fall, you get back up and do it again," he remarked, highlighting his unique approach to parenting and bonding with his children.

The "Fast X" and "Dune" actor also extends his fatherly love to Zoë Kravitz, his stepdaughter with Bonet and Lenny Kravitz. Momoa's supportive nature was evident when he attended the New York City premiere of Zoë's film "The Batman" in March 2022, accompanied by her younger siblings.

In a previous interview with Men's Health, Momoa praised Zoë as an inspiring role model for Lola. Momoa's journey is more than just his cinematic accomplishments; it's about a father using his influence to shape a better, greener world for future generations.

His story is a compelling blend of celebrity, environmental advocacy, and a father's love, inspiring parents and environmentalists alike.
