Vietnamese-Australian singer Thanh Bui has appeared in a UN video, featuring many world notables, on sustainable development.

Titled “We The People for Global Goals,” the clip is part of the United Nations campaign “Global Goals,” which was announced at the beginning of last month.

In the video, notables including Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Lawrence, Jenifer Lopez, Robert Pattinson, Meryl Streep; UN Messenger of Peace Stevie Wonder; Bill Gates and his wife; Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan; boy band One Direction; and many more spoke out the UN’s 17 goals for sustainable development.

They are no poverty; zero hunger; good health and well-being; quality education; gender equality; clean water and sanitation; affordable and clean energy; decent work and economic growth; industry, innovation and infrastructure; reduced inequality; sustainable cities and communities; responsible consumption and production; climate action; life below water; life on land; peace and justice strong institutions; and partnership for the goals.

The “Global Goals” campaign aims to both make the goals famous and push for their full implementation.

According to the UN, if the goals are famous and people care about what has been promised by the politicians, it will greatly increase their chance of being implemented.

Singer Thanh Bui, who joined in presenting the fourth goal of quality education, expressed his pride being in the video with the world notables.

“This motivates me to work harder in education, especially to improve music education and performing arts in Vietnam,” he said.

The singer plans to speed up the progress of the music education foundation he is working on in hopes that all children in Vietnam, including disadvantaged kids, will have the chance to get access to music.

“Representing Vietnam’s image, I just want to try my best to call on as many people as I can to help make a better world, as the campaign’s message says,” he said.

Earlier, Thanh Bui was an ambassador for the energy saving project Global Power Shift and a campaign to protect rhinos in South Africa.
