About the Work

Every year hundreds of thousands of people die worldwide by drowning. But eight times more die of skin cancer, caused by the sun. On the beach, there are warning flags for all dangers. But not for the deadliest danger yet. That’s why we invented the Sun Warning Flag for German Cancer Aid. As a warning when UV radiation reaches a critical level. German Cancer Aid joined forces with other leading organizations to establish this new kind of beach warning system. The flag got officially listed in beach warning flag compilations. And has been submitted to the International Organization for Standardization ISO for rollout worldwide. Sun Warning Flag hit the news and its impact was huge. Especially in countries with beaches. All around the globe. Because the most dangerous thing about the sea is not the sea. It’s the sun.
