Tens of thousands of people around the world have created “climate ribbons” to share what they love and hope to never lose to climate change. They are bringing them to Paris to tie onto a Tree of Life sculpture that will be a centerpiece of COP21 mobilizations.

What do you love and hope to never lose to climate chaos?
We must share our climate grief, so we can move towards solidarity and action.

The Climate Ribbon is a storytelling project, art-installation and grassroots mobilization all rolled into one. For the duration of the UN Climate Summit (COP21), the Climate Ribbon will be installed at key venues throughout Paris. At the close of the COP21, on December 12th, red climate ribbons will be featured in actions around the world, when concerned citizens draw the climate “red lines” that negotiators must not cross.

Ribbon messages include: “The kindness among strangers,” “Safety for my grandchildren,” and “My country, Syria.”

WHEN: November 29-December 12
