Football kits redesigned for climate awareness

Football kits redesigned for climate awareness

A man has redesigned football clubs’ kits and badges to show how climate change could impact these teams.

Kyle Harman-Turner, from Climate Clubs, has shown rising water levels on the kits of Chelsea, Norwich City and Ipswich Town.

Explaining his decision, he said: “Climate problems are the biggest challenge globally and nothing rallies people like football. People think climate change is this far away thing and you have these visions in your mind of polar bears on ice caps but actually it's something that's very close to home.”

The shirts are not for sale but flags have also been made with the same design, with all profits going to companies “tackling climate change.”

Nottingham Forest’s badge was remade to highlight forest fires, as well as Brentford’s to show how many bees could be lost to climate change.

Mr Harman-Turner is hopeful that more awareness can lead to more change.

“Manchester City have been collecting rainwater on the stadium roof and they're turning it into a matchday beer - that's the sort of thing that feels really interesting and really powerful, as this subject matter can quite often be quite dry,” he said.
