In 1989, Trudie Styler co-founded the Rainforest Fund with her husband, Sting, to protect the world’s rainforests and the indigenous people there. Alongside a creative career both behind and in front of the camera, Styler has continued a life’s work in protecting the environment, supporting human rights and speaking up for those whose voices have gone unheard. Styler is a 2018 recipient of a Brown honorary degree in recognition of her work. In a talk, she explores connections between her artistic passions and her activism and reflects on the importance of protecting the Earth and its people.
