Singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding announced to fans on Twitter today her recent appointment as a United Nations Environment Global Goodwill Ambassador. Goulding made the announcement while visiting the U.N. Environment headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.
My focus will be on amplifying the activism of young people committed to creating a bright future. I want as many people as possible to become advocates for the planet.
I’m delighted to announce that I have become a UN Environment Global Goodwill Ambassador. Thank you to @unep head @eriksolheim for making it official @giraffe_manor. All witnessed by Ed the giraffe (he’s pretty special. Only 800 of his species left). Feel very honoured :) pic.twitter.com/tDbuAGFmev— Ellie Goulding (@elliegoulding) December 3, 2017
