The Climate Ribbon was invited to the 2017 Climate & Energy Funders Group meeting in San Francisco, April 13-14, and our interactive ribbon sculpture greeted participants on arrival with an opportunity to feel into what they personally stand to lose to climate chaos,. Space and time constraints got us to innovate a new design for the ribbon, one you can easily make for your next event. We used a tri-fold screen as a base, weighted it with sandbags covered in natural-toned fabrics (remnants), and tied strings between the edges of the screen to use as the lines for the ribbons. 

The Climate Ribbon Tree as a folding screen shape, and the accompanying table for people to make their own ribbons to add.

Climate Ribbon co-creator Kate McNeely screws in hooks to tie string between the hinges of the folding screen.  Want to bring this design to your community?
