CarbonStory, a crowdsourcing platform for climate change projects, has created a campaign to show what the world might look like in 100 years, after sea levels have risen by up to six feet as a result of global warming.

A website called World Under Water uses Google Street View and Web GL to show what famous landmarks as well as local areas will look like after the ice caps have melted.

The stunt is timed to coincide with World Environment Day on 5 June.

“Over the years there has been a lot of talk about climate change but sadly not enough action. The World Under Water Campaign has been designed not just to increase awareness about climate change but also to give people a platform to take action to create a better future”, said Andreas Birnik, co-founder of CarbonStory.

The agency behind the idea was BBDO Singapore.
