illUmiNations: Protecting Our Planet

I would have liked to have seen this (in person). Glad to see it now. Very moving.

The Whole World Is Singing… But We’ve Stopped Listening

20 September 2014 – In the lead-up to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Climate Summit, the United Nations lit up its iconic Headquarters complex in New York with a spectacular 30-story architectural projection show aimed to inspire global citizens to take climate action.

Entitled “illUmiNations: Protecting Our Planet”, and organized in partnership with the Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS) and Obscura Digital, the projections were shown on the white marble west facade of the UN General Assembly Hall and north facade of the Secretariat building from 7:30 to 11 p.m. Saturday evening.

      Thanks for the visit and for commenting!
