Pollution Pods at the UN Climate Summit
21–24 September 2019
UN SG Climate Summit
United Nations HQ, New York
World leaders are urged to experience the viscerally powerful artwork at the UN headquarters this September, at the 74th United Nations General Assembly in partnership with the World Health Organization.
Commissioned by the World Health Organization (WHO), Cape Farewell installed Michael Pinsky’s immersive artwork Pollution Pods on the North Lawn of the United Nations Headquarters from 21–24 September 2019, urging world leaders to act on climate and clean up our air.
As part of the Clean Air Initiative, in which governments must commit to making our air safe by 2030 at the latest, and to encourage urgent action on climate change for the sake of our health, the World Health Organisation (WHO) is urging world leaders, youth activists and the media to walk through this viscerally powerful art installation during the UN Youth Climate Summit, the UN Climate Action Summit, the HL meeting on UHC, and the UN General Assembly.
Cape Farewell thanks the following local suppliers for their support with the project in New York: Camp Production Services, Stonewolf Contracting and Event Engineering & Operations.
