Global Climate Action Summit & New York Climate Week 2018
Global Climate Action Summit
Sep 12-18 (2018) – San Francisco
New York Climate Week
Sep 24-30 (2018) – New York
Our aim was to ensure that Arctic science had a strong presence and remained a vital part of the narrative during these weeks.
Arctic Basecamp is sending a message in a bottle to the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit, that Arctic change is happening now, at unprecedented rates, and is the barometer of global risk. This is what Professor Gail Whiteman had to say about her research.
We worked with existing Arctic Basecamp scientists, and brought new scientific members of the team on board. We captured extensive video interviews with each of the scientists in the Arctic Basecamp Scientific Team, giving deeper insights into their areas of expertise.
The Arctic Basecamp digital campaign in September 2018 was made possible with the financial support of the Fort Foundation.
We also partnered with ArcticFocus.org who worked with our raw audio and video to produce compelling videos for circulation on social media.
“One of the greatest risks facing our planet is the climate change that is happening in the arctic. It’s going to affect all of us, the way we live our lives and the global economy”.
