We Are Watching

27-29 August, 11am-7pm  | 30 August 11am-6pm

Free

Dan Acher’s We Are Watching is a striking image of a giant eye flown on a monumental flag, comprising of thousands of digital portraits, contributed by people from 190 countries across the globe.

The 10-storey high flag is designed to send a clear message to world leaders with the power to affect decisions about climate change: that the eyes of the world are upon them. We Are Watching will fly over Greenwich from 27 – 30 August, ahead of the planned COP26 later this year in Glasgow.

At 6pm on 27 August there will be a We Are Watching ceremony featuring reflections, poetry, speeches and music to mark the raising of Dan Acher’s extraordinary flag. Click here to find out more about the Ceremony.
