Billie Eilish has called for “urgent, urgent action” on climate change. It is due to ahead of COP26, the United Nations’ upcoming conference on the topic in Glasgow.

The conference is set to run between October 31 and November 12. This is aiming to “bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on climate change”.

The singer, Eilish along with actor Rainn Wilson, explorer Levison Wood and others united with scientists from Arctic Basement as part of the University of Exeter’s GreenFutures campaign. They  filming a video message addressing world leaders. In the brief clip, Elish says,

“This year, our leaders are deciding the global actions required on the environment and climate emergency in a critical decade for our planet. We must stand together and speak up to save our planet. Not just for us, but for our future generations. We need urgent, urgent action now, and to work together as one.”

However, Eilish has been vocal about the need for action on the climate emergency. Last month, she was one of many artists who called on the United States Congress to push for strong climate change policy.
