WATCH: Pierce Brosnan’s Son Paris Creates Video to Encourage Youth to Register and Vote

Pierce Brosnan‘s son Paris is doing his part to help encourage young votes to register and hit the polls.

The 17-year-old son of Brosnan and his wife Keely Shaye Smith wrote, directed and produced the video “Your Voice Matters.”

“There’s a lot at stake right now,” Paris tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I think it’s important that my generation is participating in the political process.”

So proud of you dear Paris, you shone brightly in the company of all… thanks for getting your dad outta the house to celebrate the life’s work of an American Icon Ralph Lauren .

This past summer, Paris worked for Senator Ed Markey in Washington D.C. “It was a little scary at first because I was one of the youngest ones there,” he says. “I didn’t know that much about politics and legislation but he really inspired me to educate myself about issues that were important to me so that one day I could be the change I wanted to see.”

The video addresses several issues “that are relevant to my generation,” Paris adds. “I’m a surfer so of course I’m sensitive to protecting the environment but also affordable education, immigration reform, affordable health care, gun control. I talked to a wide variety of kids and heard their thoughts and voices and a lot of them were similar.”

As for possibly running for office himself some day, Paris is keeping all his options open.

“I really want to be a filmmaker and make documentaries but I could maybe see that path down the road,” he says. “I think you need to be really passionate to want to do that.”

For now he hopes those who view the video will embrace that “voting is a privilege and it’s free and if you don’t vote, then you aren’t engaged in shaping your own future,” he adds. “It’s wild to see a bunch of kids my age taking action. No matter what you believe, the earth is what we all have in common, let’s just make our voices heard and inspire others.”

Marimekko Partners With Equality Now for Partnership to Encourage Women’s Empowerment

THE STRIPES HAVE IT: With activism very much in vogue these days, Marimekko is reigniting its commitment to women’s empowerment through a partnership with the women’s rights organization Equality Now.
Through the end of February, Marimekko will donate $ 10 from the sale of each of its Tasaraita-printed garment to the group that supports human rights of women and girls globally. First designed in 1968 by Marimekko designer Annika Rimala, the even stripe collection was meant to be a symbol of equality. Created when jeans were becoming increasingly popular with women and men, her intention was to create timeless garments that would suit anyone regardless of age, size or gender. Current options include the “Lyhythiha” jersey cotton short-sleeve shirt at $ 95 and the “Tuika” long-sleeve dress at $ 265. The initiative is planned for the company’s U.S. stores and its e-commerce site.
The company decided to celebrate the meaning of Tasaraita by supporting Equality Now, which is in sync with Marimekko’s heritage of furthering women’s empowerment. Ninety four percent of the Finnish sportswear, textiles and home goods employees are women.
