You are probably familiar with the viral smartphone app called FaceApp, which gives its users the ability to see how they might look several decades from now. Now Greenpeace Russia decided to use the popularity of this fun app for a good cause: to raise awareness about the devastating consequences of climate change.
Greenpeace Russia teamed up with Isobar Moscow to launch EarthApp; a project that shows the effects climate change and global warming might have on Earth’s beautiful landscapes if things don’t change soon.
Some of the locations that received EarthApp treatment include The Arctic, St. Petersburg, and Lake Baikal.
“Climate change gets harder and harder to ignore: we see how the weather changes, how ecosystems more become unstable. And when users post their “oldified” faces, a question appears: what is going to be around us by that moment? How the world changes when we look like our portraits from FaceApp?” – Isobar Moscow’s Diana Volkova said in a statement.
