Priyanka Chopra warned in a speech at the United Nations that the world has reached a tipping point due to climate change
The opening remarks at the 2022 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) summit were delivered by Quantico actresses, and the United Nations uploaded a video of it to YouTube on Monday.
As UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors have explained, we are here today at a pivotal moment in history when cross-border cooperation is essential.
Chopra Jonas, 40, said the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has left countries struggling, the climate crisis threatening lives and livelihoods, escalating conflicts, and deprivation, disruption, appetite and inequality leading to more livelihoods. They continued their activities while destroying their foundations. The world we have been fighting for so long.
Noting that the situation is far from ideal, she continued. These crises did not happen by chance, but planning can improve them. These goals were developed in 2015 in collaboration with individuals around the world and represent an incredible opportunity for us to make a positive impact on the world.
For over a decade, Chopra Jonas has been a Global Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, visiting countries such as Zimbabwe and the slums of Mumbai, India.
When she was named Miss World in 2000, she saw the potential to influence change around the world.
The Baywatch actor told People in 2018 that she “found myself in a position of influence” and “can identify with what I believed in.”
Chopra Jonas said at the time that field excursions were the best. One of my proudest accomplishments has been her participation in the International Campaign for Children’s Rights and Welfare. The ability to go to places where these kids can’t be heard or where no one is listening to them and really shine a light is incredibly inspiring to me.
