Momentum For Change

Change The Way You Look At Things, And The
Things You Look At, Change.

Client Vision

Momentum for Change is an initiative of the UN Climate Change Secretariat that shines a light on the enormous groundswell of activities underway across the globe that are moving the world toward a highly resilient, low-carbon future. Our client wanted to celebrate and promote the project’s key concepts to a variety of audiences, including governments, international development agencies, civil society and the public at large.


We researched, designed, and produced an animation, and directed the narration by actor Mark Ruffalo. This animation recognizes the innovative and transformative solutions to both climate change and wider economic, social and environmental challenges.


The video is now housed on the UN Climate Change Secretariat website permanently. It illustrates some of the most practical, scalable and replicable examples of what people, businesses, governments and industries can do to tackle climate change, in turn inspiring audiences to participate in climate change initiatives and encouraging future projects and funding.

We hired Be the Change to design, write and produce a short animated video, to tell the story of the UN Climate Change Secretariat’s Momentum for Change initiative in a way that was engaging, simple and clever. Not an easy feat!

From start to finish, they impressed us not only with the high-quality of their work but with the “personal touch” they put on every part of the process. They kept us informed, sought our input and worked tirelessly and efficiently to deliver a video we love. Working with Be the Change was a smooth and rewarding process. I highly recommend them.
