Crowdsourced 'Climate Victory' Campaign Works to Decarbonize Our World and Defeat Climate Change
A new collaboration was launched today between the Creative Action Network, 350.org, Marcacci Communications and Green Patriot Posters to “illustrate the battles we’re winning in the fight to decarbonize our world and defeat climate change."
Climate Victory is a crowdsourced campaign enlisting artists and designers from across the country to create reimagined World War II-style propaganda posters with powerful messages as we fight for a livable future.
The collaborative started with designs including rooftop solar, wind farms, Keystone XL and fossil fuel divestment, but participants can submit a design showing what winning climate victory means to them.
"The fossil fuel industry may have a head start, but climate hawks have momentum in the fight against climate change," so get busy and submit your poster today.
