On 15 September we will haul a giant people-powered polar bear through central London. Aurora is part protest, part performance - all Arctic. She is a giant super-puppet - the size of a double decker bus - and her fur carries the names of each and every member of the movement to save the Arctic.
See her transformation over the past couple of months from a design into a giant marionette.
You can walk with her on 15 September - find out more here.
