Eilish and Wilson Align with Exeter University; Urging World Leaders to Make Decisive Climate Change Emergency Actions
Billie Eilish joined forces with actor Rainn Wilson, in calling on world leaders set to meet in the COP26, to take immediate actions in addressing climate change. “The Office” actor and the multi-Grammy awarded singer, also expressed their support for the GreenFutures campaign of England’s Exeter University as the campaign plays an important role in the discussions that will take place in the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) on November 1 and 2.
In a short video message, Eilish mentioned that world leaders will decide on emergency actions needed right now for the climate change affecting the environment. She also urges people to stand together as one in saving the planet not only for the present, but also for future generations.
In a separate video, Wilson added that what our world leaders need to have “courage,” because the decisions they have to make to address the climate crisis are the most important decisions in the history of the planet.
The UN Conference unites world leaders in increasing the pace of actions, with the aim of achieving the goals of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change as well as the Paris Agreement.
