The event at the Royal Institution London drew a number of influential speakers from politics, business and civil society including actor Ralph Fiennes, Prime Ministers from New Zealand and Fiji, plus global music star Ellie Goulding.
British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding is a Global Goodwill Ambassador for UN Environment, joining the fight to save the lives and habitats of people and animals by cleaning up our air and seas, fighting climate change and protecting species.
The UN Refugee Agency reports that an average 21.5 million people have been forcibly displaced by sudden weather-related hazards like floods, storms, wildfires, and extreme temperature ever year since 2008.
Ellie commented: “It’s a huge honour to become a UN Environment Global Goodwill Ambassador,” Ellie said, ‘Yes, we face huge global challenges, but we are also taking game-changing steps forward and that should inspire us.
“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.”
Ellie is also backing UN Environment’s #CleanSeas campaign. Each year, at least 8 million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans – the equivalent of one dumper truck a minute – harming marine species and getting into the human food chain, with plastic now found in salt and shellfish.
