Description

In a year when sustainability has become the buzzword for marketing teams, from the high street to the high end, Livia Firth has campaigned actively against the ‘greenwashing’ that is sweeping fashion and retail. As Co-Founder and Creative Director of Eco-Age and founder of the Green Carpet Challenge (GCC), she is in the perfect position to do so.

Livia is renowned for creating compelling frameworks and campaigns for environmental and social justice with global reach. She is a UN Leader of Change and has also been recognised with the UN Fashion 4 Development Award and the Rainforest Alliance Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sustainability.

In the wake of Extinction Rebellion bringing cities worldwide to a standstill related to the unprecedented climate emergency we’re facing, join us for an evening with Livia. We will be reviewing the improvements and pitfalls of the fashion industry’s approach to sustainability, exploring what lies ahead in 2020, and confronting how urgent action and change must be.

Please note: the talk will begin promptly at 7pm.
It will take place in the newly re-launched George V room at The Bloomsbury Hotel.
