Art and science collide as 1,000 drones will form a light show over the East River
New York City, NY — September 15, 2023—Starting at sunset on Friday, September 15, 2023, Eat Differently, along with other sponsors and supporters, were featured in a visual spectacular above the NYC skyline in one of the city’s first sanctioned drone shows.
The event coincided with the start of the 78th United Nations General Assembly and the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Ambition Summit and SDG Summit, along with Climate Week. Eat Differently partnered with several organizations to send a strong message to world leaders—eating plants, not animals will help address 11 of the 17 UN SDGs.
The show was developed by Projecting Change with the support of Eat Differently, Avaaz, The Ford Foundation, Fortescue, The Oceanic Preservation Society, Holtzman Wildlife, and TMRW, alongside production partners Nova Skystories, Minds Over Matter, Soren West, and HELO.
- The Eat Differently initiative inspires people to consider eating plants, not animals for their health, for the planet, for the animals, and world hunger
- In advance of President Lula’s speech opening the General Debate, AVAAZ, a global civic movement campaigning for Brazil to commit to protect the Amazon, is drawing attention that the Amazon emergency is a global climate emergency
- The support and advancement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the UN Act Now campaign
- Fortescue is a global green energy and metals company that is developing green energy technologies to help the world step beyond fossil fuels
The light animations began at sunset and continued periodically throughout the evening.
The show was directed by Academy Award-winning director of The Cove and Projecting Change CEO, Louie Psihoyos, who states, “Our creative teams have programmed a thousand drones to dance over the New York City skyline to form magical creatures that deliver messages on how to save the planet—you won’t want to miss this show.”
