Go to https://bit.ly/Keeping-The-Promise… to join us. Choose your promise to help achieve the #GlobalGoals. Let’s do this together.”
Fellow K-pop superstars BLACKPINK have also been named as Sustainable Development Goals Advocates, joining an illustrious roster of advocates that include actor Forest Whitaker, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, human rights advocate Malala Yousafzai, director/screenwriter Richard Curtis (Bridget Jones’ Diary), youth activist Valentina Muñoz and teen climate activist Greta Thunberg; BLACKPINK were appointed as advocates for the U.N. Conference on Climate Change in 2020.
In a statement about their goal to encourage young people to take climate action and bring positive change to the world, BLACKPINK said, “we truly believe in the importance of collective action. We will only be able to make a difference when we come together, for the good of everyone. Now is the time to act for a safer tomorrow and a better future.
