UN casts Disney’s Tinker Bell to raise environmental awareness among children
“This beloved animated character can help us inspire kids and their parents to nurture nature and do what they can to take care of the environment.”
- Kiyo Akasaka, UN official
The United Nations today named the Disney animated character Tinker Bell an “Honorary Ambassador of Green” to help promote environmental awareness among children.
Today's event is intended to promote environmental awareness in the lead-up to the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen in December, where countries will aim to 'seal the deal' on a new global agreement to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
