Last months issue of Cosmopolitan in Germany features an article focusing on some incredible climate change activists around the world. The article is written by journalist Daniel Boese and includes a couple of my images. This sort of placement demonstrates the mainstream acceptance of the climate change movement in Europe and I believe is a great step towards the sustainable world that we will achieve.
In conjunction with the Global Work Party, Cradle to Cradle, a event informing children and adults about sustainability was held today in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The Cradle to Cradle event was packed with kids and families, enjoying the sun, learning about sustainability and creating cool things with recycled materials. The photographs below show kids making wallets from old milk cartons and art from recycled material.
The Global Work Party was organized by 350.org and 10:10 and is being heralded as the world’s largest day of civil action ever. Be sure to hop on over to 350.org for more photography around the world.
