The environmental activist group Greenpeace launched a new campaign this week to raise awareness of climate change. It teamed up with the video game Grand Theft Auto, with the help of their creative agency partner VMLY&R Brazil, to show players what the real-life effects of climate change would be on Los Santos, a virtual version of Los Angeles.
It’s one of the most famous online cities, and to try and hit home the urgency of the environmental crisis, Greenpeace launched a playable version of the map for people to explore, complete with flooded coastlines, dried-up rivers and air pollution. The game, ‘Los Santos +3ºC,’ was available online from the 22nd to the 25th of February. Players wore face masks in the game, and could take part in missions like delivering clean drinking water and rescuing climate refugees. It also linked to donation pages, where players could sign petitions calling on governments to call for a climate emergency.
