The Champions Gala took place on September 26. She has been also playing a key role in bringing India to the forefront at UN events the world over.

Dia has been an environmental changemaker, a voice for causes related to nature. She has been an advocate against single-use plastic and campaigned with the United Nations on #BeatPlasticPollution in her role as a goodwill ambassador for the environment.


With an added responsibility as an SDG advocate, Dia uses every chance she has to create awareness and inspire people.

Dia, who has been vocal about environmental conservation and protection, also took to Twitter on Friday to highlight "climate emergency".


"Seven of the world's 10 most polluted cities are in India. If this is not a Climate Emergency, what is? We must raise our voices and come together. Kids have taken charge of the fight against #ClimateChange. #GlobalClimateStrike #ChangeIsComing #ActNow #SDGs," she shared along with a link of a site, urging people to join the global climate strike in India.

She has also taken to blogging in order to create awareness about the environment, and to remind people how each and every action counts.
