The YouTubers has been named one of the The Global Goals’ Ambassadors for Sustainable Development.
On 25 September, 193 world leaders are committing to 17 sustainable development goals, which aim to end poverty, fight inequality and tackle climate change over the next 15 years. In order to help achieve this, The Global Goals are aiming to make all 17 goals famous, so they’re not forgotten.
As an ambassador for The Global Goals, Tanya Burr has started the #TBGlobalGoals campaign, in order to get people to share the goal they’re most passionate about. In her video on the matter, Tanya called on her fans to help make the goals become a reality.
Tanya kicked things off by sharing a selfie of the goal most important to her: number 5, gender equality.
I am very proud to be an ambassador for @theglobalgoals – I've just uploaded a video to my YouTube channel explaining what The Global Goals are and telling you guys about a very special video I'm making and how you can be in my video. (Link is in my insta bio) The goal that means the most to me is goal 5 – gender equality. It makes me so excited to think of all the changes that will be made by 2030. Let's change the world together! #TBGlobalGoals
So far, many viewers have shared their images and videos all over social media using the hashtag #TBGlobalGoals, along with some more familiar faces.
