The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water


Climate Change + Emoji = Climoji

Climate change communication is notoriously difficult, but a group of artists and students have come up with an innovative and thought-provoking new way to connect people to climate change in the 21st century: climate change emojis, or ‘Climojis.’ Designed by artists Marina Zurkow and Viniyata Pany with the help of Zurkow’s students at New York University, Climojis are a set of downloadable climate change-themed sms stickers for android and iphone that are designed to be used in text messages to spark conversations about climate change.
