In a time when our environmental future is uncertain, natural disasters are becoming more frequent, and the window to avoid further irreversible climate damage is closing, collective action is essential. Last year, Princeton Architectural Press put out a call for designers to create posters that evoke a sense of urgency and action in countering the climate crisis. 50 designs were selected from nearly 1,000 entries that spanned dozens of countries across six continents, and collected as a book: Posters for the Planet.
“This collection of climate change protest posters aims to empower many voices and create a platform that allows people to take a stand via the age-old, analog process of making protest posters,” they write. “Climate change is a dire topic in need of raised voices—and protest posters.” The posters in this book are detachable and usable in schools, coffee shops, or wherever there’s a wall.
Partial proceeds will be donated to Indigenous Environmental Network, Clean Air Task Force, and Coalition for Rainforest Nations.
