ELLIE'S CLIMATE CRUSADE TAKES HER TO DAVOS

Ellie Goulding delivered coffee and a pledge to spread the message about climate change at the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland, where the parking lot is filled with 1,500 private jets.

Goulding delivered coffee with reusable rCUPS for a team of climate scientists who had camped out overnight at Davos.

“I wanted to come here to the Arctic Basecamp at Davos to show respect to the incredible scientific team who camp out in subzero conditions in order to communicate cutting edge climate science on behalf of humanity,” said Goulding, a UN Environment Global Goodwill Ambassador and WWF Ambassador.

 “We know that what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic: the loss of sea ice affects us all so it is crucially important they are here at Davos. In particular the melting of Arctic sea ice will make life very difficult for younger generations. I’m here to make sure that action is taken on their behalf and that we remain ambitious for their future.”

Now in its third year, the Arctic Basecamp replicates a field study camp, and a team of scientists, led by Professor Gail Whiteman from the U.K.’s Lancaster University, is stationed there for the entirety of Davos to talk visitors through cutting edge climate science.

Whiteman said, “We are so concerned about this that we have come to Davos to tell world leaders they need to act urgently to reduce CO2 emissions. … We hope Ellie’s visit does wake up Davos and the wider public to realize the Arctic is fundamental to all of our lives no matter where we live.”

She suggested that Goulding visit the Artic, promising to serve her a can of beans
