BLACKPINK Speaks About Climate Change In Video With British Ambassador
K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK delivered a video message about the aftermath of climate change as the advocate for the United Nations 26th Climate Change Conference (COP26).
"We all saw documentaries about the issues [of climate change], spoke to others, and actually witnessed the changes ourselves, leading to a greater understanding of the severity of the situation," Jennie said in the YouTube video uploaded on Blackpink's official YouTube channel on Thursday.
BLACKPINK's Jisoo expressed her worries about the effects of climate change, saying, "After learning about how the Earth and our future [are] being threatened by climate change, we were worried and scared about what will happen next."
In addition, Jisoo expressed that BLACKPINK members are grateful to be chosen as advocates against climate change.
"We were still at a learning stage, but then we were given an opportunity to listen, watch and learn firsthand [by becoming advocates] for which we are very grateful," Jisoo expressed.
The YG Entertainment girl group was selected to be advocates of COP26 in February 2021 and has been speaking up about issues related to climate change since then.
The video posted on Thursday was filmed at the British Embassy in Seoul with British Ambassador Colin Crooks on May 26 as part of a celebratory event for Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee.
Meanwhile, as a way to become more sustainable in its practices, YG Entertainment shared, "We have been using eco-friendly substances for our artists' products such as albums and related merchandise. For the plastic vinyl wrapping, which isn't easy to substitute, we are using eco-friendly substances extracted from cornstarch."
