With schools around the world shutting down to protect kids from COVID-19, Greta Thunberg’s school strike for the climate is becoming a moot point. Staying home from school is now de rigueur, not an act of protest against carbon emissions.

But that doesn’t mean the movement is over. Even when the coronavirus crisis fades, the threat of climate change will still loom large. So Thunberg is encouraging schoolchildren to continue to strike in the same way that many of their parents are continuing to work—digitally.

Fridays For Future uploaded a 360-degree image of a march down the streets of Copenhagen, taken before cities began locking down to prevent the spread of the disease. Another 360 image imagines what the street in front of the Copenhagen Climate Ministry will look like after an apocalyptic sea level rise.

The images are hosted on the platform of Danish marketing and search company Krak, which partnered on the project with Fridays For Future for the campaign by Stockholm creative agency Abby Priest.
