WWF Netherlands: The Big Melt

In early 2012, ice on the Amsterdam canals began breaking up and melting. This presented us with a unique opportunity to raise awareness on the issue of climate change in a way that hadn’t been done before. In prime spots around the city, QR codes were transferred onto the ice which had a link to the WWF Netherlands site (http://www.wnf.nl/nl/wat_wnf_doet/thema_s/klimaat/) and instantly put the issue of climate change in people’s hands. And once the ice started to melt, it was a natural ‘demonstration’ of this problem. There was no media spend, and there are no laws against printing on ice.

Nice thought, probably an experimental try.

Wouldn't people passing by be more incline to scan the code if WWF was "printed" near the QR code.
