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.

  1. This is beautiful! Unfortunately, some will only admit that climate change exists when it strikes their pocketbooks. Originating from a small island developing country which is extremely susceptible to climate change, I can see changes every time I return to visit.
