------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Climate change is real and it’s happening now.

The planet is at risk of catastrophic effects from growing emissions of carbon dioxide that are driving up temperatures threatening all life forms and risking our rich biodiversity.

This planetary damage has been mainly human caused. Burning fossil fuels and industrialisation in combination with deforestation has led to dangerous levels of carbon dioxide building up in the atmosphere, which is driving global warming.

Carbon dioxide levels are now at their highest levels in human history.

Keeping rainforests standing is the simplest and most cost effective way to mitigate climate change.

Tropical forests have the highest carbon density of all forest types due to their ability for vast carbon sequestration. Protecting rainforest is one of the most effective actions we can take to tackle climate breakdown.

But yet we are destroying the world’s rainforests at a faster rate than ever before.

So what can we do about it?

There are people and organisations attempting to tackle these colossal challenges of climate change that faces us all.

Over the past months, 7sessions has brought together an incredible group of individuals, businesses and organisations through a series of speaker led events where they have shared their knowledge and inspired us with a positive approach to take climate action in our daily lives.

Our 7th Session on 26th November will once again bring together inspirational people gathering at the Curtain Hotel in Shoreditch for a day of love, music and a celebration of Mother Earth.

Proceeds raised on this day will go to “Cool Earth” a non-profit organisation that works with rainforest communities to halt deforestation and its impact on climate change.

The day will be in two parts:

one

@ 4pm the day will firstly begin with Dame Vivienne Westwood giving a lecture on literature and culture as a part of her IoU series of events. IoU are 'Intellectuals Unite'. An Intellectual is someone who wishes to understand the world and their place in it.

During this talk Vivienne will aim to address the complete picture:

'knowledge gives us our past, present and future. Knowledge = what defines our species, homo sapiens.

The present world suffers from the isolation of intellectuals, therefore to that extent, everyone is isolated: it is through culture that we link together. The 20th Century abandoned culture and accepted consumption.

Consumption feeds austerity. IoU is open to All – you just have to read a book, that is your roots. We are the people, we are homo sapiens.'

two

@7:00pm we will continue into the evening with a special intimate DJ Set by HAAi. HAAi's absorbing & slow-release style makes for sets that deal in long lasting pleasures rather than instant hits of gratification. Plucked from relative obscurity, 3 years ago HAAi was instilled as the Saturday night resident for London club Phonox, with her residency coming to an end in September 2018 after a run of sold-out closing parties & her debut Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 being named the Essential Mix of the Year. In this time, her profile has grown exponentially, now playing shows and festivals all over the world to thousands of revellers who have bought into her propulsive and eclectic selections. HAAi is an avid collector of Thai and Turkish funk, tripped-out psychedelic records and Nigerian and Kenyan beats. Playing for 6 hours every Saturday night has allowed her to seamlessly mix these genres in with her love of techno, creating an unrivalled experience for the adoring fans she plays to around the globe.

Master Peace - If Run DMC and Aerosmith had a child, we would have the young, energetic Master Peace. Emerging from the grime scene, ‘Master Peace’ isn’t your average MC. Mixing rock and rap in a way that has not been done before, the South Londoner describes his sound as “raw”, “alternative” and very left.

Henry Bennett - supervised the music for the event will also DJ. Henry is a sound artist and DJ affiliated with LDN venues FOLD, The Glove that Fits and Sketch.

Truman Dinosaur - Truman Dinosaur is the quintessential British five piece reinventing psychedelic pop for a new generation. Evoking the spirit of Syd Barrett and the lost summer of love, Truman have awakened the dream song so we may never sleep again. Keep your eyes peeled for debut 7" 'Does this feel like Heaven' due this December.

ABSOLUTE - From the sweaty walls of Dalston Superstore to the main stage of Milkshake Festival (in both Amsterdam and Sao Paulo) the ABSOLUTE. artist project has grown out of Anthony’s home studio into a fully-fledged proposition supported by some of the world’s leading tastemakers.

Ruby Confue - Phenomenally intricate, Ruby's sound demonstrates great versatility. Fusing Urban-Jazz with Neo-Soul, Blues and R'n'B, Ruby delivers a fresh, new perspective that captures audiences with soulful vocals and epic instrumentals.

Additionally, Geoff Dembicki, award winning New York Times and Vice journalist, Sam Potter, artist and musician, and Composer Edo van Breeman will show an incredible music video using Climate Change data, made during a part-NASA funded that look into how to use data for better communication of the sciences.

In between the music we will hear from organisations actively placing pressure on corporations and governments to take urgent action to confront the climate crisis.

Greenpeace will speak during the night, followed by a talk from Music Declares Emergency, who are a group of artists and music industry professionals that have come together to declare a climate and ecological emergency.

The room will be filled with environmental art curated by the Earth Issue magazine, a collective of artists and creative professionals working at the intersection of fine art and environmentalism. We will see works from Chiara Zonca, Elena Cremona, Elizabeth Fleur Willis.

Hubbub, a charity that creates positive environmental campaigns that inspire people to make healthier, greener lifestyle choices will display their innovative, playful and educational installations. Guests will be able to interact with the installations and learn more about how our daily actions can have damaging effects on the environment.

The evening will end with an up-tempo eco celebration with performances from Pleasure Cruiser, Tokyo/London based electronic music producer and DJ, and ALXNDR, electronic music producer and DJ.
