Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the Danish actor and UNDP Goodwill Ambassador who plays Jaime Lannister in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, will be at NIST International School, Sukhumvit Soi 15 in Bangkok on September 30 as an honorary judge at the Global Goals World Cup (GGWCup), a female football competition.
“A partnership between Eir Soccer and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the GGWCup works to raise awareness and rally communities in support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through a world series of powerful soccer events. During the event, teams of adolescent girls and women will play to raise awareness of the impact of poverty, inequality and climate change, and encourage progress toward sustainable development across the world,” NIST International School announced on their website.
Coster-Waldau and the UNDP aim to rally public support to address issues of gender equality and climate change. “My main mission as UNDP Goodwill Ambassador will be to raise awareness and support for the Global Goals for a better future for all, which cannot be achieved without empowering women and protecting our planet”, Coster-Waldau said.
