Take your community on a brisk one-minute walk in the Solar System!
Everyone is invited to 'Walk the Solar System for COP21' – a progressive performance for communities around the world to visually and aesthetically demonstrate their subscription to the belief that our humanity is bound to the ecological health of planet Earth.
• Gather your community at an inspirational location • Designate a photographer to document the performance • Space yourselves aesthetically • Adopt a strident walking pose • For one, still, silent, contemplative minute walk 1,800 km together relative to the Sun • Contemplate the vast expanse of the Solar System and the universal value of planet Earth as home • Photograph the Solar Walk • Return to Earth - everyone does!
As a good solurban citizen petition COP21 about your communal conviction and the imperative the Paris Conference has to protect planet Earth as we know it by posting a photograph of your Solar System Walk:
