Billie Eilish, perennially eco-conscious Gen Z pop star, is throwing the most Gen Z event of all: a climate action party. Following her first OVERHEATED climate event back in June 2022, the singer has announced she’s throwing a second one at Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace in west London this month. There will be plant-based food, climate conversations, roller skating and, yes, Billie Eilish will be there. Here’s everything we know about the event.
