In a step to help provide environmental awareness (and perhaps a tad of promotion), the United Nations named Tinker Bell the ‘Honorary Ambassador of Green’ early Sunday.
‘We’re delighted Tinker Bell has agreed to be our Honorary Ambassador of Green,’ said Kiyo Akasaka, Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information. ‘This beloved animated character can help us inspire kids and their parents to nurture nature and do what they can to take care of the environment.’
The announcement was followed by a screening of the film attended by the filmmakers and stars Mae Whitman and Raven Symone.
There will be a UN climate change conference taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark in December.
