  • Photocall: How are you going to share the carbon budget?

• What: A colorful stunt to illustrate that the richer countries have largely been responsible for burning through more than half the amount of carbon that can be emitted in order to remain under the 1.5/2° threshold. If we keep burning carbon in this way, the rich countries will use far more than their fair share, leading to catastrophic climate change, and pushing the climate action effort onto other countries.
