the doing: a climate safe campaign for anon2

the rebels discussed the amount of action being taken by young people in relation to the climate crisis and created a subvertisement that replicated the covid-safety’ qr code contact tracing posters, replacing the content with a checklist for climate safety.

the submission:

what overwhelms you?

“It’s been a lot of talking but it feels not enough has been done. Why? How to convert awareness into action? How to influence others to take action and deal with practical difficulty in taking action?”


“Everyone knows about climate crisis (except those who refuse to wake up) but it doesn’t seem to change enough people’s action. Many don’t want to change their ways of life. Many corporate don’t want people to change their ways of life. What can we actually do (instead of express an opinion)? The human beings don’t have much time.”

anon2, 9.10.20.

the thinking:

what is the idea we are moving forward with?

action is being driven by young people – AYCC is the largest youth-run organisation in australia.
commonwealth bank dollarmites – builds financial habits in young people
there’s many ways to act.
you’ve got to have skin in the game, you need to feel the stakes
solar panels on every surface.
a future without capitalism, and without human dominance, rights of nature
covid safe plans for businesses came in very quickly, could there be an equivalent climate safe plan?
can a business or organisation even be climate safe? similar fines.

how can we do it?

parody the covid sign-in, asking if the things we’re doing are safe on an inter-species level.
sourcing indigenous knowledge.
animals that have been affected by the bushfires, wearing masks “are you climate safe?”



where does it need to take place?

posters in front of and inside business

are there any legal implications to the activity?

permission to put up posters? clear parody of existing
