General observations

Superheroes are an ideal theme for promotions and campaigns. As such they are are often short lived.

Such a lot of time energy and money go into creating campaigns (and a lot of the other work I am looking into). Wouldn’t it be great if people archived their work and offered it out to be reused – so that future campaigns can build upon it. What if campaigns could actually be designed from the beginning to be adapted and reused?

Some of these projects are gerneral ‘Eco’ ones rather than specifically focusing on Climate Change. There are other Superhero projects relating to Energy and Renewables but I haven’t included them here.
