The good news is that we may still have a small time window to limit global warming to 1.5°C and avert the most terrible consequences of climate change. But the deadline is coming soon.
The Climate Clock project measures it in real time – second by second – opening our eyes to the imminence of the crisis and raising awareness on the multiple lifelines that could buy us more time (such as the use of renewable energy).
Monumental versions of the Climate Clock are being installed in cities around the world (the first one in New York City), as iconic reference points for citizens and passers-by.
Apart from installing a Climate Clock in your town, building your own action clock is still extremely difficult: IT, electronics and DIY skills are needed to make it work and keep it in sync.
That’s the reason why we have designed the Climate Calendar: to give an alternative tool to people and activist groups who don’t have this kind of skills and still want an impactful object to make the issue tangible.
The Climate Calendar is a low-resolution, manual version made of paper of the countdown towards the deadline, performing the same task without electronic devices or internet connectivity. It can be self produced and easily displayed in homes, schools, offices and shops.
Moreover, it adds the power of active daily ritual to mere passive awareness and it can be a powerful trigger for reflection, discussion and action.
How can I get a Climate Calendar?
We are preparing a set of instructions and a tutorial to make your own Climate Calendar. Alternatively, you are going to be able soon to buy a ready-made Climate Calendar, whose earnings will be donated to the cause.
