If Glacier Vanishes,
So Will We
Meltdown Flags is a climate data initiative that visualizes glacier retreat by reducing the amount of white in the flags of their home countries. From 1995, the year of the first UN Climate Change Conference, over today, to 2050, the year set out to reach net-zero emissions.
Even though I only played a small part in the project, I’m proud to contribute my bit and be involved with the team.

Protest in COP25 Madrid
Handsewn flags take the message to the streets. In December 2019, Meltdown Flags made their first appearance at the COP25 in Madrid. Since then, they have become a symbol of protest at climate demonstrations and events around the world.
A website provides more information and ways to act. Visitors can visualize the degree of glacier retreat by country, as well as access more data and information. They can also calculate and offset their carbon footprint. By downloading the flags and custom typeface, they also take part in the initiative.
