How do you create and sustain a movement around climate change? Why not use art, suggests writer and environmental activist Bill McKibben.

"We need a big movement, and big movements come from beauty and meaning, not columns of statistics,” writes McKibben for the Huffington Post.

That's why McKibben's nonprofit 350.org and Planet Mag are working with contemporary artists to create visual interpretations of Earth to build awareness around climate change and sustainable living. Ten percent of the proceeds are going to Charity: Water, which works to provide safe drinking water to the poor. You can check out pieces by Chris Scarborough and Allison Schulnik — among others — here.

Curated news and insights about innovative, market-driven solutions to poverty explored through news, commentary and discussion.
