Natural Climate Solutions
This project was created for the promotion of an important and exciting environmental initiative, led by journalist and author George Monbiot. Launched in April 2019. It was featured on the Guardian's homepage.
I created all the designs and illustrations for the project, as well as creating the 100 second video. The video forms a large part of the campaign, alongside multiple social media assets created from the video and illustrations on the campaign website.
When living systems – like forests, peat bogs, saltmarshes and the seabed – are allowed to recover, they draw down carbon from the atmosphere, reducing the chances of climate catastrophe.
Their restoration will also minimise extinction and ecological collapse, and create a richer world of wonders for us to enjoy.
We are calling on governments, the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (UNCBD), UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and other bodies to give Natural Climate Solutions the attention they deserve.
