Advertising Week Europe (AWE), the continent’s largest annual gathering of advertising, creative, entertainment, marketing, media and technology industry leaders, today announced an addition to the line-up for its fifth anniversary edition, which begins on March 20.
Former Vice President Al Gore will appear in conversation with Empire Editor-in-Chief Terri White on March 23 to discuss An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power, which premiered in late January at the Sundance Film Festival. Set to release later this year, a decade after the two-time Academy Award-winning landmark documentary An Inconvenient Truth was released, the new film follows Gore as he continues his decades long fight to build a more sustainable future for our planet, showing us both the escalations of the crisis and the real solutions we have close at hand.
Advertising Week Global CEO, Matt Scheckner, said: “Leveraging the Advertising Week Europe platform to shine the spotlight on climate change transcends the industry and is exactly the kind of impact issue that defines our DNA.”
