On September 9, 2018, we invite you to join us at Crissy Field for an immersive experience where we’ll co-create an iconic visual message to the world that will be filmed from the sky. This artistic ritual will be fueled by people power as we share our collective intention to manifest a regenerative future. This co-created symbol is a message to world leaders of all levels that the climate has changed and so must we.
*Your RSVP is required to support in the technical aspects of the art creation
CENTERING THE WISDOM OF INDIGENOUS LEADERS
We are creating a community platform to center the demands of indigenous people, amplifying the voices of youth and impacted frontline communities. As such, we are honored to host delegations of indigenous leaders from around the world to bless this gathering and share strong calls to action.
WHY GATHER NOW
With more than 15 devastating environmental disasters in 2017, and 2018 faring no better, it is deeply apparent that the Earth is calling out for help. In light of the United States pulling out of the Paris Agreement, the time is now for the world to unite to protect our Mother Earth, from further desecration and devastation wreaked from the impacts of globalisation and capitalism. This message is created to inspire leaders who are a part of the Global Climate Action Summit to prioritize indigenous rights and wisdom, climate justice, and keep fossil fuels in the ground.
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 9
4:30 PM -7:30 PM
CRISSY FIELD, SAN FRANCISCO
Together, we’ll co-create this symbolic image of the hummingbird to reflect the collective power of the human spirit, solar energy, joy and resurrection. The image will also include the message Rise for Climate Justice which will morph to Rise for 100% Renewables! in support of the Climate Movement. The whole bird and sun will become alive by the collective movement of our bodies, synergizing together.
