On September 21st during the People’s Climate March tens of thousands of people will march through the streets in NYC to demand climate justice on the eve of the UN meetings.

To get the word out about the march and climate crisis issues in general a number of us in Justseeds have created images for it. We created a series of 11″x17″ offset posters that can be downloaded here. We also collaborated with environmental groups – specifically 350.org – on a much larger project. This Summer and Fall I helped co-coordinate a 30-host wheatpasting action across N. America. Three 4’x6′ images by Favi, Josh, Chip were printed in Toronto by Jesse, Mary, and others. They also printed collage elements and then mailed the prints to hosts across N. America.
Photos are rolling in left and right that document these local art actions. Here are a few:

I will follow up with more photos from others cities as more work goes up in the ten days proceeding the march and it is important to note that this creative action is simply one of many art actions taking place in NYC and around the world during the lead up to the UN meeting.
