Priyanka Chopra has warned that the world is at a “tipping point” with climate change.
The 40-year-old actress spoke at the United Nations on Monday (19.09.22) about the 2022 Sustainable Development Goals, where she insisted the world is “not all right” after the COVID-19 pandemic, but believes “crisis” can be canceled when the plan is put into effect.
She said: “We meet today at a critical moment in our world, at a time when global solidarity is more important than ever. As countries continue to grapple with the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, as the climate crisis claims lives and livelihoods , when conflict rages, and when the displacement of poverty, hunger and inequality are destroying the very foundation of the fairer world we have fought for so long. All is not right with our world. These crises did not happen by accident, but can be fixed with a plan.”
The “Quantico” actress, who is married to former Disney Channel star Nick Jonas and has a seven-month-old daughter, Malti Marie, explained that the “plan” has been in place for seven years and explained that we have an “extraordinary opportunity” to make changes.
In her speech, which was later posted on YouTube, she added: “We have this plan, the UN Sustainable Development Goals, a to-do list for the world. These goals were created hand in hand with people around the world in 2015; together we have an extraordinary opportunity to change the world we live in.’
“We owe it to our people, we owe it to our planet.”
