Create and Strike 2020: How big can we go?

location The Crown Tavern | 18.30 - 21.00, Tuesday February 11th

How can Create and Strike evolve to help get millions out on strike for the climate?

2020 is going to be massive for climate in the UK. Many organisations are focusing their attention on the international climate conference, COP 26, in Glasgow in November. How can we make politicians know that the UK public care about our climate?

How about helping create the largest industrial action the UK has ever seen? Getting millions of people out on strike for the climate?

In 2019, Purpose Disruptors supported the UK Student Climate Network and developed Create and Strike. 160 CEOs signed a letter agreeing for their staff to join the strike on September 20th. Let's see how we harness this community to encourage not just more of the industry to go on strike, but to get millions of UK citizens out there too. To leverage our relationships with our clients brands, media partners and beyond. How big can we go?

So, please join us for a drink (alcoholic or otherwise) UPSTAIRS at the Clerkenwell Tavern, Clerkenwell, Tuesday night, February 11th, from 18.30 for a creatively-minded Purpose Disruptors meet up to stretch our sense of what's possible and imagine together.

Purpose Disruptors is the networking group for people in advertising, media and other creative industries to come together and explore how we can meaningfully tackle our climate and ecological emergency.

We look forward to welcoming you on February 11th.
