World leaders – including US President Joe Biden – gathered in Cornwall to attend the G7 summit to discuss the health, climate and nature crises. This was the first of two global meetings Prime Minister Boris Johnson will host this year – and an opportunity for the UK to lead on climate action.
Greenpeace used this moment to greet world leaders as they made their way to the summit by sending them a strong and simple message.
For the first time, 300 illuminated drones and light projections have been used to create breathtaking 3D moving images of iconic animals. The animals travel from all corners of the world and are seen descending on Cornwall, demanding that the world leaders at the G7 ‘ACT NOW’ to tackle the climate and nature crisis.
Then – to make sure world leaders saw our message – activists staged a protest as US President Joe Biden landed in the UK on Air Force One.
Read on to find out more about how we created this message.
