The Angry Birds and the green piggies have joined forces with the United Nations in support of its ActNow climate campaign, a global call for citizen action on climate change. Back with the UN and the UN Foundation after 2016's successful #AngryBirdsHappyPlanet partnership, the birds are joined this time around by their longtime enemies (turned "frenemies") the pigs and are looking to spread awareness about individual actions we can all take to combat climate change.
As part of the campaign, a public service announcement launched yesterday starring the Angry Birds, the green piggies and the English-speaking voice cast behind the film The Angry Birds Movie 2. Together, they are encouraging citizens to discover and track simple everyday actions that can make a difference by using the UN's innovative new online climate action tool, the ActNow Bot.
"Climate change is already impacting our world today regardless of where we live," said Maher Nasser, Director, Outreach Division, UN Department of Global Communications. "It is through climate action - built on cooperation and collaboration within and across communities - that we can confront the climate crisis. We see many people around the world sounding the alarm and demanding action by world leaders. We are grateful to the Angry Birds for adding their voice again to the call for each of us to lead by example and demonstrate that every action counts."
