A Window
On the Global Crisis

Perhaps you have experienced the odd heatwave or the occasional spring flood, but some of us live through these extreme weather events all too often. That is because climate change does not affect everyone at the same time or on the same scale. It takes different forms depending on where we live.

All over the world, people are losing their homes to wildfires and being impacted by floods, as well as suffering the effects of air pollution on their health.

The following experience provides a window into the far-reaching ways climate change affects the lives of millions of people worldwide, except that this window overlooks your street and the places you hold dear.

What now?

The urgency of climate change

The truth is that we are running out of time. Climate change poses a serious threat to humankind.

Unlike the images generated on this website, climate change is real and it’s happening right now.

Only 8% of the carbon budget remains before we reach 1.5° C of warming.

It took humanity less than 8 months to exhaust the Earth’s yearly resource budget in 2020.

G20 countries were responsible for 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Here are real images of places around the world where people are working to overcome the climate crisis with innovative solutions.

What can you do about it?

We believe everyone should ask themselves how they as individuals and we as a society can make sustainable changes to mitigate the climate crisis.

It is time to use our voices, put the environment at the forefront of our decisions, and rethink our consumption and convictions.

We’ve put together a list of actions and resources for you.

1. Spread the word

Start by sharing your AI-generated visualization with your network. Make it known that you care. Let’s get more people, including your friends, family or even coworkers, to see the impacts of climate change for themselves.

The more people share this project, the greater the impact we will have at bringing about change.

3. Act now

Climate change is a global emergency. Our political representatives and multinational corporations have the power to mitigate climate change, but they will not act unless we demand urgent measures and change our consumer behaviour.

What’s more important: individual or collective action?


“The bigger issue is that focusing on individual choices around air travel and beef consumption heightens the risk of losing sight of the gorilla in the room: civilization’s reliance on fossil fuels for energy and transport overall, which accounts for roughly two-thirds of global carbon emissions.”
— Michael Mann, Professor of Atmospheric Science and Director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University.

Collective action

Here are some available mechanisms to put pressure on policy makers and large corporations:

Individual Action

Your impact on the environment is influenced by different factors, such as where you live, your habits, your mobility, etc. It’s a good idea to start by estimating your carbon footprint
