UN Secretary-General re-appoints HH Sheikha Moza, EAA's Founder and Chairperson, as part of the 2019-2020 class of Sustainable Development Goals' Advocates

Doha, Qatar, May 11, 2019:   Education Above All (EAA) Foundation is pleased to announce that United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has re-appointed Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, EAA’s Founder and Chairperson, along with 16 influential public figures, as part of the 2019-2020 class of Sustainable Development Goals’ Advocates. This new class of advocates is committed to raising awareness, inspiring greater ambition and pushing for faster action on the SDGs, which were adopted by world leaders on 25 September 2015. 

Peace, prosperity, people, planet, and partnerships are the principles at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which also drive the new class of SDG Advocates. To build the momentum for transformative, inclusive development by 2030, the Secretary-General’s SDG Advocates will use their unique platforms and leadership to inspire cross-cutting mobilization of the global community. 

During the announcement, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, said: 

“We have the tools to answer the questions posed by climate change, environmental pressure, poverty and inequality.

They lie in the great agreements of 2015 – the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change. But tools are no use if you don’t use them. So, today, and every day, my appeal is clear and simple. We need action, ambition and political will. More action, more ambition and more political will.”

He added: “The Advocates will be important partners for the Hub as they will be taking our messaging out into the world, amplifying our initiatives, participating in our events, and will be feeding into our work streams. We look forward to working and partnering closely with them going forward.”

Join EAA in supporting HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser and the other 16 advocates, as they take on the ambitious role of driving action, building ambition, and solidifying global political will to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
