United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has reappointed Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser along with 16 influential public figures as part of the 2019-2020 class of Sustainable Development Goals' Advocates.
This new class of Advocates is committed to raising awareness, inspiring greater ambition and pushing for faster action on the SDGs, which were adopted by world leaders on September 25, 2015.
Peace, prosperity, people, planet, and partnerships are the principles at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which also drive the new class of SDG Advocates.
To build the momentum for transformative, inclusive development by 2030, the Secretary-General's SDG Advocates will use their unique platforms and leadership to inspire cross-cutting mobilisation of the global community.
Guterres said: "The Advocates will be important partners for the Hub as they will be taking our messaging out into the world, amplifying our initiatives, participating in our events, and will be feeding into our work streams. We look forward to working and partnering closely with them going forward."
HH Sheikha Moza has been selected for a second time to be an Advocate of the Sustainable Development Goals in recognition of her leading role in providing quality education, youth empowerment, and human development through her initiatives at the local and international levels.
