Interactive, global event ’24 Hours of Reality’ pulled in a total of 8.6 million viewers by the time it wrapped up last weekend. Created to offer a round-the-clock, round-the-globe snapshot of the climate crisis in real time, the project is the brain child of Al Gore and featured a multimedia presentation created by Gore delivered once per hour for 24 hours. In New Zealand, it was the Sustainable Business Network chief executive Rachel Brown tasked with delivering Gore's presentation. Check out the video below to see highlights from the Auckland event or to watch Gore deliver his presentation himself, check out the bottom video.
