THE STORY:

This December, we want to light up the Eiffel Tower to signal the start of the "Climate Revolution."

This appeal is supported by ORIGIN magazine, Mark Ruffalo, Moby, and 10+ major global groups with donations matched by a challenge grant.

UPDATE: The installation under the Tower had to be cancelled due to security concerns, but we are still going to light up the Tower.  Your contribution is more important than ever.

 

In less than a month, thousands of leaders from around the world will gather in Paris for the UN Climate Change conference - or" COP21."   Each day starting on the 5th, thousands of people will come to the HUMAN ENERGY art installation under the Eiffel Tower to generate electricity to light the Tower up each night. Their message will be simple: Together we can take transformative action now to deal with the climate challenge.

Artist Yann Toma and  HUMAN ENERY team ave been working for almost a year to create the largest  participatory art installation ever with more than 100+ bikes, rowing machines, and a dance floor.  It will be the #1 art event in Paris during COP21 with the endorsement of  the French Presidency, the City of Paris, and the UN,  

HUMAN ENERGY has already raised more than $1,500,000. in mostly in-kind contributions.  Now they need your donation so that Eiffel Tower will be the people’s powerful voice at this critical moment.

HUMAN ENERGY is cooperating with other organizations, including the Climate Sign Campaign and Kiss the Ground, which also seek to engage the public in new - more hopeful ways - of seeing the climate challenge.   We want to stimulate a growing global movement particularly of young people united in their desire and efforts to secure a brighter future for all of us. 

Maranda Pleasant of ORIGIN magazine and Jacob Scherr with NRDC are launching this appeal to raise a total of  $200,000 in the next two weeks for HUMAN ENERGY.  Our initial goal for this crowdfunding appeal is $30,000.  An anonymous donor has agreed to give $150,000 as challenge to each of you to donate as much as you can.. Learn more about HUMAN ENERGY at www.humanenergy.fr/en The French American Cultural Society, recognized by the IRS, is handling tax-deductible contributions for the project. 

HUMAN ENERGY is partnering with the Climate Sign Campaign - a group of young people who have created and are promoting a new "peace sign" for a generation and world imperiled by climate change.  See photos of Mark Ruffalo and Moby raising the Climate Sign.

With your help, we CAN change the course of history this December by lighting the Eiffel Tower - a symbol of revolution.  Your donation will send a message of urgency and hope to be shared, heard, and acted on worldwide.
