Event description
The climate crisis is racing up the business agenda and now, globally, the marketing and advertising industry is beginning to respond.

About this Event

This November, join us at sunrise to learn more about what’s facing the future of business and brands, and young people’s take on what we should do.

The Youth Lab, together with Thinkhouse’s ‘PLANET’ team, are collaborating with Jeremy Mathieu, world-leading sustainability advisor, to lead a rallying call for a new dawn of marketing and advertising, in the context of the climate breakdown. Jeremy has trained over 4,000 people in climate change facts and leadership, helping organisations and companies such as SKY, the International Olympic Committee, RTÉ, Mindshare and BAFTA Albert to develop an understanding of the climate crisis and sustainable action. He is currently a sustainability advisor to the BBC.

Together we will share facts, stories and advice on what organisations, businesses and brands can do as part of World War Z - as we battle alongside young people to fix the climate crisis. A panel discussion will provide how-tos and tips from those who are leading by example.

“What we do or don't do right now will affect my entire life and the lives of my children and grandchildren. What we do or don't do right now, me and my generation can't undo in the future.” - Greta Thunberg, 16-year-old climate activist and founder of the School Strike for Climate movement.
