The actress and former beauty queen has been appointed UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador for India.
Well-known actress Dia Mirza, who will next be seen in Rajkumar Hirani's upcoming biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt, featuring Ranbir Kapoor in the titular role, has added another feather to her cap. She has been appointed UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador for India. The actress will be raising awareness and seeking solutions for environmental issues that the world, and India in particular needs. "I feel honoured and inspired by this opportunity to work with UN Environment to protect the environment and promote sustainable development. Environmental issues will be the defining challenge of this era, and I am committed to helping the UN as a Goodwill Ambassador to do everything I can to provide a better future," said Dia in a statement.
Dia, who is also the brand ambassador for the Wildlife Trust of India, added, "Together, we will continue working towards conservation of nature, tackling climate change and inspiring people to live more sustainably. I am delighted to have Dia join UN Environment as a Goodwill Ambassador. India faces many challenges, in particular, the air pollution that is choking many of its cities.
We wish luck to Dia for accomplishing new responsibilities.
