Creatives for Climate Change


We posted earlier about Björk working to prevent a pipeline in Iceland, and she is continuing to lobby this point while working to raise support of climate change activism across the board.

Today, world leaders are meeting in Paris to discuss how to address climate change, and many creative icons have signed a petition speaking for the “creative community” and its desire to spearhead dramatic and inspiring change. David Bowie, Björk, and Damon Albarn are just a few of the over three hundred artists who have signed the petition stating their concern “that our global economic and industrial systems are accelerating rates of extinction, desertification and soil depletion, degrading ecosystems, acidifying and littering our rivers and oceans.”
