Make-A-Wish Australia's Edda Hamar named UN global leader

Huge congratulations to our very own Edda Hamar, one of 17 global citizens who have been recognized for their outstanding leadership by the UN!

The UN Young Leaders for the Sustainable Development Goals had over 18,000 nominations. Edda was recognised for her sustainable fashion show “Undress Runways”, the largest annual sustainable fashion show in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, which attracts 50,000 people annually.

Edda joined Make-A-Wish Australia in 2016, and works in our volunteer fundraising and community events team for the Queensland area.
