The flag first flew in 2019 for Madrid’s COP25 UN Climate Change Conference and was carried by the crowd there at the close of the 500,000-people-strong March for Climate, where artivist Dan Acher presented the project on stage before Greta Thunberg spoke her manifesto.

Since then We Are Watching has:

  • Flown high above Geneva – home to the Human Rights Council – to mark the opening of the 2021 FIFDH International Human Rights Film Festival.
  • Featured in the IUCN Asian Farmer’s Association campaign ahead of COP26 with We Are Watching events in the Philippines, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Lao PDR and India.
  • Opened the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London, flying close to the line of zero degrees longitude to reinforce its global resonance.
  • Toured the UK on its way to Glasgow’s COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference, and flown in front of Edinburgh’s Scottish Parliament Buildings.

The flag continues its journey around the globe, keeping the eyes of the world firmly on decision-makers. More on
