launch of noor climate change project

Climate Change by NOOR launched with a series of events and public initiatives during the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen in December 2009.

Filmmaker Ivan Abreu documented these events.

During the first week of the Climate Summit, the Danish newspaper Information produced 50,000 additional copies of an entirely image-driven Danish-English language edition dedicated to Consequences by NOOR. More than 20,000 copies were distributed inside the Summit Center to attendees and keynote speakers and approx. 30,000 copies were made available at metro, train stations and public spaces across Copenhagen. Inside the UN Climate Summit Bella Centre, Consequences by NOOR was exhibited inside Greenpeace International’s 12-meter high exhibition globe.

The NOOR photographers presented the work and participated in a panel discussion with international thought leaders and policy-makers. DASK Gallery Copenhagen hosted an opening night reception and a month-long gallery exhibition showcasing 36 images from the project. The centrally located advertisement agency Reputation presented Consequences by dressing its seven shop windows in down town Copenhagen. The “Planet First People First” march gathered thousands and finished with a DJVJ performance with images from Consequences by NOOR supporting 100% Isis and Mike Sheridan, two well-known DJ’s. The Consequences by NOOR street exhibition was all over Copenhagen in the form of an encompassing poster and postcard campaign at non-commercial spaces.

The project exhibition garnered  international press coverage by American Public Media’s Marketplace, MSNBC, GEO France, de Volkskrant, Internazionale, Photo District News, The Times of London, Global Post, L’Europeo, Audubon Magazine, Orion Magazine, Chicago Public Radio, Russian Reporter Magazine and many others.
