Ellie Goulding names U.N. Environment Global Goodwill Ambassador

Ellie Goulding has been appointed a U.N. Environment Global Goodwill Ambassador. “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,” the singer said on Twitter alongside a photo of herself petting a giraffe at the Giraffe Manor in Kenya.

“All witnessed by Ed the giraffe (he’s pretty special. Only 800 of his species left). ­­­­­­Feel very honoured :),” Goulding continued.

Goulding said that her new role will focus 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.”

The 30-year-old, who recently received the Global Leadership Award from the U.N., will also be helping with efforts to clean up the environment, fight climate change and protect endangered species.
