The United Nations has confirmed the selection of Dia Mirza as the new UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador for India. This comes in as a welcome news for the 2000 Miss Asia Pacific Dia Mirza (and her fans), who had been involved with various charities and social-work campaigns in the past.
UN found her profile perfect for this post given her popularity and the environmental and social awareness campaigns that she was a part of. The ‘RHTDM’ star has been contributing towards social and environmental causes for a long time and is known for her sensitive and progressive approach towards her charities.
UN Environment Goodwill Ambassadors are chosen from a pool of prominent individuals from art, science, literature, entertainment, sport and other fields of public life who have expressed a strong desire to contribute towards raising awareness of the aims, objectives and priorities of the United Nations and to convey messages about its activities and to extend its public outreach.
Given her strong commitment to environmental and pro-social causes, she was a compelling candidate for the post. The prestige, talent and presence that she will bring to the UN Environmental efforts and the United Nations will send a powerful message that will reach the hearts and minds of people throughout the world.
