Recruiting Organization: The Climate Museum

The Climate Museum, the first museum in the United States dedicated to the climate crisis, has launched Beyond Lies, a participatory, public art campaign with celebrated illustrator Mona Chalabi. This initiative features a series of posters distilling extensive work by investigative journalists and academic researchers on the fossil fuel industry’s decades-long strategy of misleading the public in order to delay meaningful climate policy and maintain their business as usual. For more on the campaign visit www.beyondlies.org

  • Empower your campus community with the info they need to be climate action protagonists.
