Climate change impacts the Arctic more than almost anywhere on earth and to make matters worse the life forms that live there may be more susceptible to the toxic environment created by global warming (for more information click here). Join the call for a global sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the North Pole.
Thousands of people will come together on April 20 to form human banners spelling out I (heart) Arctic. Together we will call on our political leaders to protect the Arctic from activities that put this fragile environment at risk, such as oil drilling and industrial fishing.
Become a part of this global mobilisiation in cities from Buenos Aires to Bangkok and from Oslo to Yellowknife: join or organise a human banner in your city.
What happens in the Arctic affects us all – that’s why we are coming together on April 20 to take joint action across the globe!
