Clean Sailors supports It's Time Festival of Climate Action with Ecologi and WWF
13 November 2020, 09:00 GMT
In November 2020, the annual United Nations climate change conference, COP26, was due to take place in Glasgow. Due to the pandemic, COP26 was postponed to 2021. But the climate crisis will not wait.
Hosted by Ecologi and in collaboration with WWF, It's Time seeks to bring together everyone - from kids to CEO's - for collective climate action.
The two-day digital event taking place 17-18 November sees over 100 speakers from grassroots organisations, activists, artists, innovators, kids, scientists, comedians and even a royal patron all giving their time free of charge, to help inspire us to start (or bolster) our climate journey.
Holly Manvell, Lead and Founder of Clean Sailors says:
"Every day and every person is important in cleaning up our actions, for our oceans and our planet. Everybody counts. Everybody can make a small change to make one big, global one. It's so cool to be supporting Ecologi and WWF in the first event of it's kind. It is time, and we can't wait."
