Global pop sensation Blackpink has had a lot of achievements on its list over the last few years in the K-pop industry. While being one of the biggest K-pop groups in the world, the members of Blackpink have been recognized by the world because of their global influence as ambassadors. As of the past few months, the members of Blackpink have been doing very well in terms of their global recognition.
The second half of 2021 started with members of Blackpink as well as Blinks celebrating the group’s fifth anniversary in the industry. This progressed on to Rose from the group being one of the first two K-pop idols at the Met Gala in 2021. Their graph kept increasing with Jisoo’s K-drama being announced as well as Lisa’s grand debut that is still proving to be fruitful as well as Jennie dominating the streets in Paris, NYC, and Italy with her brand endorsement billboards and advertisements for Calvin Klein and Chanel.
Blackpink as Advocates for SDG’s
Both BTS and Blackpink have been given special roles by the United Nation for their amazing influence over the youth. On September 18, Blackpink were announced as the advocates for the Sustainable Development Goals or the SDGs set by the United Nations to fight issues like Climate Change.
The Sustainable Development Goals is a movement that discusses the implementation of sustainable development options to replace those that were harmful to the environment as well as making the necessary changes to one's life that will help put an end to the climate crisis. Blackpink joined the initiative leading the large fanbase it has amassed over the years to join in and make a difference.
Blackpink delivered a special message
On October 24, members of Blackpink exercised their good influence by participating in Google's 'Dear Earth' campaign related to climate change that was conducted on YouTube. In the YouTube Original event, all four members of the group talked about the recent crisis that has emerged due to the carelessness of people around the world as well as the natural changes in climate that have brought about many disastrous and unlikely events.
In order to raise more awareness among their global fans, Jennie and Rose addressed the world in English while Jisoo spoke in Korea and Lisa spoke in Thai. The message was also backed with an invitation for fans to watch and understand the upcoming Climate Change convention that will be held in Glasgow, England as well as Blackpink’s performance of their hit single ‘Stay’.
