Professors from the University of Maryland, School of Theatre, Dance and Performance Studies collaborated with bankers from the World Bank and UMD students to create a Flash Mob in the atrium of the World Bank in Washington, DC as part of the Connect 4 Climate "Right Here, Right Now" campaign. Bankers and students danced to the projections, choreography, and lighting designed by UMD faculty, while World Bank President Jim Yong Kim looked on curiously from the podium as The Master of Ceremonies called for security.
