The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has appointed The Crown Princess as a member of the Sustainable Development Goals Advocates for the 2030 Agenda.

The Crown Princess will be one of 16 advocates who have been appointed to participate in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Advocacy Group. The group will promote and support the SDGs for a sustainable future, the 2030 Agenda.

"I am very honoured to be one of the 16 advocates for the 2030 Agenda. The questions that the UN’s sustainable development goals address are crucial for our world. I hope to contribute to the important work that lies ahead," says Crown Princess Victoria.
