This one’s for those of you keeping track of the international impact of animated ambassadors…  At the world premiere of Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure it was announced by the UN that Tinker Bell would be the organization’s new Honorary Ambassador of Green.  “Honorary” perhaps because her ability to carry out her diplomatic duties is hindered somewhat by not being, um, real.

This is one of the UN’s steps, under the Secretary-General’s Creative Community Outreach Initiative, to promote environmental awareness in the lead-up to the upcoming Copenhagen conference on climate change. Huzzah!

According to Disney, “Since its earliest days, The Walt Disney Company has sought to inspire a love of nature and spirit of conservation through its storytelling, and the environment is an underlying theme of the Tinker Bell movies, told through the magical world of Fairies, Pixie Hollow, where nature is nurtured. Tinker Bell is a natural ambassador of Green, living consistently in harmony with the environment, her appointment, as Honorary Ambassador of Green, is a great opportunity for this beloved character to play a key role in inspiring kids.”

Mae Whitman and Raven-Symone both gave their voice talents to the film and were at the premiere to celebrate Tink’s new role.

In the interest of full disclosure, I was actually on-hand at the UN in 1997 when Winnie-the-Pooh was named the UN Ambassador of Friendship. I kinda wish I was making that up. I’m not.
