Join ‘The Face of Climate Change’ on Earth Day

22 April, 2013
On Earth Day, 22 April 2013, join the worldwide campaign ‘The Face of Climate Change’ as a powerful call for action to the global crisis. Presented by Earth Day Network, the campaign seeks to depict the real impacts of climate change on our lives by collecting images of people, animals and places affected, as well as images of people doing their part in response to the issue. On Earth Day, an interactive digital display of all images will be shown at thousands of live events around the world as well as online with people’s stories. Step up and do something about the issue that is affecting us all. You can also post photos on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #FaceOfClimate for inclusion in the mosaic.
