Suzy Amis Cameron in conversation with Juan López de Uralde

Take Care of the Planet

– Venue: Espacio Fundación Telefónica Madrid, Espacio Fundación Telefónica, C/ Fuencarral, 3, Madrid

Environmentalist Suzy Amis Cameron defines herself as a former actress and model, and mother of five children, who is dedicated to promoting all kinds of initiatives to combat climate change, among them Red Carpet Green Dress, which champions high-end sustainable fashion. She works with her husband, Oscar-winning filmmaker James Cameron (director of Titanic), on many philanthropic initiatives. Together they founded the Plant Power Task Force, which promotes plant-based food solutions for climate change, and Cameron Family Farms and Food Forest Organics. A vegan philanthropist, Amis Cameron turned to her sister Rebecca Amis to establish MUSE School Amis, the first school in the USA that offers only plant-based foods. She talks with Juan López de Uralde, congressman for Álava, founder of the Green Equo party and director of Greenpeace in Spain for a decade, who provides the perspective of a political activist. In 2010, López de Uralde published El planeta de los estúpidos: Propuestas para salir del estercolero (‘The Planet for Morons: Ways to get out of the dungpile’).

Suzy Amis Cameron in conversation with Peter Florence

Climate change: A global or individual challenge?

– Venue: Campus de Santa Cruz la Real, IE University, Aula Magna

This year, concern for the future of the planet has resurfaced with a bang. Demonstrators throughout the world are calling on governments to act before it is too late, though for many it is already. The prominent environmental advocate and philanthropist Suzy Amis Cameron has promoted multiple initiatives dedicated to combating climate change in the areas of both sustainable fashion, with Red Carpet Green Dress, and child nutrition, with MUSE School. She also founded, with her husband, filmmaker James Cameron, Plant Power Task Force, Cameron Family Farms and Food Forest Organics, dedicated to food based on local products. She appeals to individuals to make a change, to make a contribution to the environment by following a simple programme she presents in her new book, OMD Change the World by Changing One Meal a Day
