Be specific, stop the loggers. Climate Revolution is working with the charity, Cool Earth; working with indigenous people they are ring-fencing the forest to stop the loggers and so protect the interior. They are on track. So far they have raised £20million in actual money and in kind from practical support from governments. We need another £114million to save the whole world equatorial forest by 2020. The Queen has welcomed the Commonwealth's commitment to protect the forest in her name using the Cool Earth model to halt the destruction of rainforest.

We Are Citizens of the World

Vivienne Westwood | Posted 05.11.2016 | UK
Vivienne Westwood

Throughout the world, in every walk of life people are changing their values. Save a plastic bag and you have already begun to think. We wanted to be a focus for that. And we link with other NGO's so that we all speak with the same voice. My fashion and my activism support each other - they are driven by the same motor. "I want a better world." I say, "Buy less, choose well, make it last." Quality not quantity. I use my green politics for graphics on clothes and our shows have these themes. I use every opportunity to open my mouth for our activism. We will fuse our fashion website with Climate Revolution.

Climate Revolution

Vivienne Westwood | Posted 04.11.2016 | UK
Vivienne Westwood

We have abused our world for so long that we take it for granted that there is no other way to behave. We like things as they are and we learnt to love lies. Lies are good for you - they make you feel better. We are the last generation who can stop climate change and save the world from mass extinction. James Lovelock guessed that by the end of this century there would be only one billion people left. He thinks we're too late to stop it because we are too stupid. Scientists all agree we must act now, they are not sure how much time we have and if time has run out.
