Extinction Rebellion Whoopi Goldberg has teamed up with Extinction Rebellion in a beautiful new animation set in the future, entitled ‘The Gigantic Change’.

Visit https://www.thegiganticchange.com to find out how you can take action today. As we start to plan how to rebuild our world post-Covid, the film shows that a brighter future really is possible. But this won’t happen on its own; we must all take action today. The climate and ecological crisis is an existential threat to people of all ages and backgrounds. The need for collective action has never been greater. The team behind The Gigantic Change, together with Passion Pictures – who created the famous Orangutan advert for Iceland – knew that Whoopi’s iconic voice would bring a perfect sense of gravitas to the performance. She is a prominent campaigner on environmental issues, so she had the power to inspire many of her followers to take action. The urgency of the situation clearly resonates with her, and many others, but the challenge is to communicate this urgency to the wider public. This is the primary purpose of The Gigantic Change. After seeing the film, viewers are invited to visit https://www.thegiganticchange.com, a simple website outlining the most effective actions they can take to save the environment. Whoopi Goldberg has appeared in such films as The Color Purple, Ghost, and Sister Act. She became the first African American woman to host the Academy Awards and only the second African American woman to actually win one. Today she has a strong voice on climate issues and is an active supporter of the School Strikes.
