The UN's global sustainable development goals

In January, the then UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appointed The Crown Princess as one of 17 advocates for the work involved with the UN's sustainable development goals. The advocates' task is to promote the UN's sustainable development goals – Agenda 2030 – in various ways. From 2019, The Crown Princess will be part of the alumni group.

As an alumnus, The Crown Princess will continue to focus in particular on work relating to the sea and fishing.
