Pitbull to address the U.N. on the global water crisis

Mr Worldwide is being named the Clean Water Here Global Ambassador

Pitbull is set to address the United Nations, with plans to speak on the global water crisis and be awarded the title of Clean Water Here Global Ambassador.

The pop megastar has lent his voice to the platform, and will speak at the U.N.’s  New York headquarters on World Water Day (March 22). He will discuss the ongoing global water crisis, before being awarded for his own efforts to provide clean drinking water for disadvantaged communities across the globe.

He is also launching a new social media campaign alongside Clean Water Here, titled the “Clean Water Here Cause Flash”. Bruno Mars, Pink, Maroon 5 and more are set to join the campaign, which aims to raise awareness of clean drinking water projects.

“Our leaders need to understand that economy and environment are not mutually exclusive. One is not more important than the other. Try counting your money while holding your breath, starving and dehydrating at the same time. All life needs water,” said Pitbull in a statement. “Clean Water Here is committed to improving access to safe water for all, and it is an honor to serve as global ambassador. Equally, it is an honor to address delegates at the United Nations on World Water Day about this critical issue.”

On March 22, the U.N. General Assembly President Miroslav Lajcak is also set to launch a 10-year plan focused on sustainable development of water resources.

Last year, Pitbull was named amongst the top ten earners in hip-hop by Forbes.
