Join environmental activist, supermodel and writer Lily Cole for a live-streamed conversation with former WIRED editor David Rowan on turning optimism into action.

Lily’s acclaimed new book Who Cares Wins charts the biggest challenges we face today, and explores all the things that are happening (as well as looking at what needs to start) to avoid climate catastrophe. It’s an optimistic look at those who are making a change in the world.

Lily and David will be discussing the future of socially responsible business, and how innovators are responding to issues like fast fashion, renewable energy and gender equality.

Essential viewing for anyone interested in how entrepreneurship and technology can have a positive impact on the world.
