We take a look at the upcoming COP21 and our VIP campaign for fashion consciousness.
Between the 30th of November and the 11th of December, all eyes will be on Paris as the United Nations Climate Change Conference will take place for the twenty-first time. This year sees the conference take place at perhaps its most critical conjuncture as far as the global conversation over climate change is concerned. The focus this year rests specifically on the discussion of cutting global CO2 emissions. The goal for Paris in December is pretty clear-cut: to achieve a legally binding agreement, with universal participation among all nations, to keep global warming below what most scientists say is the critical threshold of 2 degrees Celsius of warming.
It’s not only politicians and state leaders that will be there meeting and flying the flag for environmentalists. Many famous people have been out lending their voices to the cause, including model Cameron Russell who is organising a “Models Who March” protest up to Paris. Many people from the world of fashion will be making their mark by joining those in Paris assembling for the summit later on this month. All of us will be affected by the effects of climate change so this event will be critical in framing the international response in preserving our planet.
Rêve En Vert is running a VIP influencer campaign throughout the month to create awareness around this issue, check us out on instagram at @revenvert to see what’s happening, as well as searching the hashtags #sustainablestylist & #COP21.
