D&AD Lates: Our Toughest Brief Yet

How can the creative industries respond to climate change and global warming? With this in mind, D&AD facilitated 'Our toughest brief yet' and invited climate change activists and creative industry leaders to have their say on how we can take responsibility and use its collective creative powers to drive possible solutions for global warming and the environmental crisis at hand. The debate saw a passionate discussion on how creatives can find solutions to climate change in advertising. Here are some of my photos from the night.
