Copenhagen Apologies from the Future
Greenpeace and Tck Tck have worked together to place posters at Copenhagen Airport expressing sorrow from the world’s leaders, from the year 2020. Leaders arriving at the COP15 United Nations Climate Change Conference have seen future versions of Barack Obama, Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkel, Gordon Brown, da Silva, Donald Tusk, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Dmitry Medvedev and Stephen Harper each say, “I’m sorry. We could have stopped catastrophic climate change… We didn’t.”
The Future Apologies campaign was developed at Arc Communications by creative director/designer Toby Cotton. Photos were researched by Karen Guy.
