In September we completed a major project designing a 160-page breakthrough report on climate change, which launched at the UN Climate Summit in New York.
The report, entitled ‘Climate Emergency, Urban Opportunity’ has been produced for the Coalition for Urban Transitions and contains new research findings showing that national governments can unlock nearly $24 trillion in benefits by Investing in zero-carbon cities. The report also shows that cities can cut emissions by 90% by 2030 creating 87 million jobs.
For the Creative Concern team the challenge has been to transform a huge amount of scientific data and intelligence into easy-to-grasp graphics, charts and imagery. Illustrations of urban transitions had to be culturally diverse to appeal to readers in all parts of the world.
Alongside the main report, an executive summary was produced in six languages, as well as materials to support the launch event in New York.
