An international group of approximately 350 change-agents gathered on December 06, 2015 to join an aerial art ritual as part of the COP 21 Climate Change Conference in Paris. This piece aimed at expressing a commitment of cross-cultural solidarity for a 100% renewable energy future. The photography became the iconic image of the conference and spread virally through online and traditional media. It was prominently featured in the NY Times, Le Monde and many more. This was one of the first public demonstration allowed in wake of the terror attack that occurred just weeks before in the city.

GLOBAL CLIMATE ACTION SUMMIT, San Francisco, September 2018

On the eve of the Global Climate Action Summit, environmental advocates, youth, local community leaders and Indigenous people from around the world converged at Crissy Field, under the iconic Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco. Together, participants created a large-scale aerial art image as they were immersed into an avant-garde musical journey.

The experience was meant to convey that honoring Indigenous Rights by Standing for Climate Justice is key to a truly 100% Renewable Energy Future.

In the face of an intense time of drought in California, 300 participants joined this creative ritual to call in the protection of water.  And then, a series of powerful synchronicities unfolded under our eyes. During the ritual, an intense fire started raging in Lake County in Northern California, destroying thousands of homes including Harbin Hot Springs. The next day, it rained from Northern to Southern California. This was the first rain in over 6 months!
