Climate Week NYC is one of the largest international climate summits and is where the world gathers to showcase amazing, impactful climate action and discuss how to do more for our planet. Junk Kouture has joined forces Climate Week NYC as their ‘Sustainable Living’ program partner. The Sustainable Living program will bring together a diverse array of events to inspire everyone to be an ally to our planet and shares tips on how our day to day can be transformative to ourselves and the environment.
As Sustainable Living program partner of Climate Week NYC, Junk Kouture will continue our aim to enrich and empower the lives of young people throughout the world in a sustainable, creative way. The growth of Junk Kouture community and outreach has led to the creation of the ‘Circular Engineers’ of tomorrow – young people who are confident, big-thinkers and who hold sustainability at the core of their outlook on the world. Working both individually and collectively, these change-makers are forming the most dynamic part of climate action.
