Route One and re:ply skateboards are coming together to host “For Cop’s Sake!” from 1st - 12th November 2021 at Route One's store, 254 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow.
“For Cop’s Sake!” aims to send a message from the skate community to world leaders, gathered in Glasgow, to take the bold steps required now, for all our sakes and to raise money for the Environmental Justice Foundation to battle climate inequality.
The store will be transformed on the 1st November from a retailer of skateboards, clothing and footwear, into a Skateboard Art Showroom, displaying artwork donated by Skate Artists on re:ply decks, from around the world, for COP26.
The works capture the artists’ response to the Climate Crisis and send a message from the skate community to world leaders, to take the bold steps required now, for all our sakes!
The show will culminate in an online auction on Friday 12th November at 6pm (GMT), hosted by Forum Auctions. 100% of the proceeds from the Auction will go to Environmental Justice Foundation (Charity No. 1088128).
The Environmental Justice Foundation is a charity working to address climate injustice by exposing environmental human rights abuses and defending the vulnerable communities that bear the brunt of the climate crisis.
“EJF is all about bringing people together to defend our shared human right to a safe and secure natural environment. We know that climate change can sometimes feel too big, too complex, or too costly to tackle. www.forcopssake.org
“For Cop’s Sake!” aims to help save the future by inspiring and uniting some of the next generation of climate activists committed to halting global heating and the storms, floods, fires, and droughts it creates.
