The Action Report: Q1 2020
We founded Birdsong in 2014 as believers in taking action - against exploitation in the fashion industry, and the climate devastation it’s wreaked on earth. To flock together in uncertain times, we want to help you take action too . Here’s a run down of what we’ll be up to and thinking about for the next quarter.
1. where to find us
2. how to take action
At times like this, it’s easy to feel powerless, but in our opinion we have to be engaged and involved to be empowered to make change. We’ll be doing what we can to campaign for a Green New Deal, in fashion and across the board. Read more about the Green New Deal here.
Also thanks to Celine Semaan of @slowfactory for bringing this brilliant article to our attention about the beautiful, and necessary partnership between fashion and science to bring about culture change around sustainability."It is evident that a symbiotic relationship between fashion and science is evolving, along with a moral imperative for the fashion industry, as a global leader in visual storytelling, to present a version of the planet we want to live on, to counter the current doom and gloom view of climate change.”
3. where to go
“The concept that people think we are doomed—we are not. We are fortunate as a species to be able to see what we are doing. We, as a species, can look at the planet as a whole. We can see how this global system works. We haven’t done that yet because we haven’t gotten awareness of the problem.” - Robin E. Bell, professor, Columbia University Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
