Politics and creative arts don’t have to be so separate, as seen in the United Nations Sustainable Development Action campaign.
The 17 goals to transform the world now features a plethora of YouTube Creators (the company’s name for its channel hosts) that will be working on the UN goal of achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls throughout the world.
YouTubers Ingrid Nilsen, Chika Yoshida, Taty Ferreira, Hayla Ghazal, Louise Pentland, Jackie Aina, and Yuya will be the new faces of the UN initiative. YouTube, in conjunction with the new goals, has created a playlist on YouTube Spaces designed to show women’s voices in the world, with an international reach and many different stories to tell.
“YouTube has always been a platform where women of all ages and backgrounds can find their voice and tell their stories,” YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said to Fortune. “Through our global YouTube Spaces program and new partnership with the UN, we’ll strengthen female voices on YouTube and around the world.”
