Leading up to the COP26, a major climate change conference, international k-pop stars, Blackpink, shared their message about climate change. In an interview with BBC, they shared their inspiration behind their latest call to action was Sir David Attanborough’s documentary “A Life on Our Planet.” In the same interview Blackpink member Jennie explained “the documentary showed us how precious our planet is and how vulnerable it is right now.” Jisoo added that “our message is that it’s not too late.”
Blackpink was recently named as goodwill ambassadors for the 26th annual climate conference after their video message was viewed over 10 million times across the internet and social media. They even received a personal thank you from UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Blackpink’s international fame means that they can help climate change and COP26 the international attention it needs. The all-female k-pop group is using their platform to raise awareness for climate change issues that they hold close to their hearts. What really resonates with their message is that by taking small steps together, as a planet, we can make a positive impact on the environment.
