A night of talks, live music and secret cinema is being organised by Vivienne Westwood with an aim to wake up the activist inside you. Taking place at London's The Box nightclub, Climate Revolution Presents: IoU is a continuation of the legendary designer's Intellectuals Unite platform: a student movement that opposes the current political, economic and social dogma.

"We are student intellectuals spreading IoU (we owe each other the world) through the colleges of the UK," she says. "The present world suffers from the isolation of intellectuals, therefore to that extent, everyone is isolated: it is through culture that we link together."

Speakers on the night include Vivienne herself, alongside ocean activists Project 0's James Jagger and Mike Walker. Music will be provided by Ray Noir, Raindog and Mic Righteous, the British MC with whom Vivienne recently made her rap debut on the track, Be There.

Entry is free to anyone between the ages of 18-25 but be sure to read the dress code: attendees are required to wear their finest "sea warrior" garb.

Climate Revolution Presents: IoU takes place 7-11 pm at London's The Box on Tuesday 20 September.
