Former football player David Beckham and Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown spoke at the United Nations headquarters in New York City on Wednesday, demanding action to protect children's rights.
«Young people are calling for a planet that can support them and future generations, where our resources are sustainable, and our environment is protected,» Beckham said. «And they are calling for... Еще peace, for an end to violence, an end to war, an end to the political and cultural divisions that destroy communities, tear families apart and endanger children's life in every single day.»
The stars, both of which are UNICEF goodwill ambassadors, were speaking in commemoration of World Children's Day.
«Young people like her [Greta Thunberg] are shouting for the world leaders to hear, to listen and to act. Every one of you here today can be the loud speaker that turns our voices into real change, into policies, programmes, laws and investments that keep children safe, that makes our world a better, healthier, stronger place for all,» said Brown, who became the youngest UNICEF goodwill ambassador ever in 2018.
