The need for immediate actions to prevent and mitigate climate change effects has put pressure on the researchers to raise awareness of the phenomena in the general public. Climate Whirl – project introduces a holistic view on climate and ecosystem research in a manner that is at the same time comprehensible and thought provoking. Climate Whirl acts as a framework for many different activities such as interactive "live" websites, artworks, summer schools and workshops.

Climate Whirl team organised a Carbon Tree workshop at the Arabia Street Festival in May 2015 with a theme -Logs from air- utilizing our portable CarbonTree animation and hama-pearls as material to build own CarbonTree. The festival had 25 000 visitors in a day. The workshop gathered lot of interested visitors.
