Clarks Presents Changemakers Forum for New Campaign “For the World Ahead”

To influence the future, we must act today — and when we act together, small steps become big steps. By giving everyone the freedom to move around comfortably, we believe people can be their best, unique selves. By acting responsibly, we create a better future for global communities and future generations. And through innovation, we make shoes that keep pace with the movement of the world.

This fall/winter, Clarks is proud to launch The Clarks Group, an impressive group of ambassadors and activists committed to creating real social change in the world.

Starting 08.09.22, Clarks is partnering with five leaders in racial equality, mental health awareness, LGBTQ+, and family rights activism. Clarks provides a platform for the voices of those inspiring people who share your drive to create a better world.

Tara McRae, head of global marketing and chief digital officer at Clarks says:
The Clarks Group is a strong group that breathes life into our new brand motto – for the world into the future. They all have an important identity, a story to tell, their own philanthropic endeavors and a strong position on what they want for their future world. Over the coming months, Clarks will guide and support them on their way to promoting and advancing the well-being of others in their unique communities. They have all opened doors for like-minded people in their communities, which is why we chose to partner with them on this special campaign.”

Upon launching the campaign, Clarks will work with each individual talent to capture their unique personal stories, sensibilities and visions for the future, and spark new conversations about social and environmental impact with a broader audience.

Throughout the year, Clarks continues to highlight the Clarks Collection as part of its For the World Ahead campaign. Clarks supports and promotes charities and initiatives for each of the Five Talents to drive positive change. Watch Clarks’ digital and social channels to see how Clarks connects with the community, working together for a better world.

Because if 200 years of shoemaking have taught us anything, it’s that you have to stay true to your roots while staying true to tomorrow. And the future will be much brighter if we continue to lead the way.
