What is a Human Sign?
A Human Sign is where people assemble to form the letters of a phrase designed to send a message to government. The message, CLIMATE CHANGE – OUR FUTURE IS IN YOUR HANDS, was submitted by a primary school student at one of the participating schools. As the message can only be seen properly from the air, photos will be taken from a tethered blimp, and a light plane.
