Why is climate change so important to you?
Climate change is important to me because it’s something I’ve been learning about since I was a child. Back then I heard all these horror stories of what was going to happen in the future if the climate increased by 1° or 2° and I was terrified by it when I was seven and now that I’m 22 I realise that everything that they told me is true and it’s important that we act faster than ever before.
Are you hopeful for your future and the future of the next generation?
I’m incredibly hopeful for the future, I think my generation and the generations that will come after me are very switched on to the world around them and have been making huge conscious efforts to change their lifestyle in order to prevent climate change. I’ve seen that so much and I hope that continues with the generations that come next too.
How do you make sustainable choices?
I make sustainable life choices by limiting the amount of plastic that I buy, reducing my time in the shower (a good tip is to start having cold showers) I try limit the amount of air miles my food has travelled and I limit the amount of meat and dairy that I consume or purchase as well as trying to influence people around me.
Do you have a favourite brand at the moment?
My favourite brand at the moment is Collina Strada. It's a clothing and accessory label that concentrates on promoting sustainability and social awareness.
What's next for Maisie Williams?
I am in the middle of making a documentary about the southern resident orca whales in the Pacific Northwest of America that are currently starving because they can’t get enough chinook salmon. The documentary is called searching for chinook. As well as that I’m trying to figure out what my next role will be hopefully it’s a good one
