6 June, 15:00 – 16:00 CEST

This session with Duncan Meissel from Clean Creative will explore the intersection of advertising and sustainability.

During his presentation, Duncan will guide us through the corridors of the world’s most powerful creative and reputation/PR management agencies, revealing the extent of their connections to Big Oil, and uncovering their techniques to delay and deny climate solutions. Additionally, our guest will chronicle the efforts of a new generation of environmentally aware actors pushing toward sustainability free of misleading claims.

Join us to learn what the ‘The F List’ is, the dangers of fossil fuel marketing and PR with misleading claims about climate change, and much more.
