Recently, Oliver was delighted to have the opportunity to present constituent, Moksha Roy, with a Points of Light Award.
Points of Light Awards are presented daily by the Prime Minister to people who are making a change in their community.
Moksha received the award for her exceptional service advocating the UN Sustainable Development Goals and campaigning on issues such as pollution from microplastics.
In September, Oliver headed up a UK delegation in New York for the United Nations General Assembly High-Level Week, some of which focused on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Mr Dowden said: ‘Congratulations to Moksha on receiving the Points of Light Award.
‘At just 7 years old she is already a passionate campaigner, advocating for sustainability and the reduction of pollution. I am glad she is being recognised for her brilliant work.
‘I recently spoke to the UN General Assembly about how the UK is increasing efforts to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and I am pleased to see that young people like Moksha are inspired to make the world a greener place.
‘I would also like to thank Moksha for giving me her ‘Rainbow of Change’ representing a safe and sustainable future.’
