The gigantic postcard was seen on the Aletsch glacier under Jungfraujoch in Switzerland.
 
The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) said the postcard was composed of 125,000 small cards. Each contained drawings, messages and wishes of fighting climate change from children and youngsters from 35 countries and regions worldwide.

“Today we are going to break a Guinness Record here. Behind me, you have a huge postcard, made of small postcards, 125,000 small cards.”
 
At the center of the postcard was a slogan reading "STOP GLOBAL WARMING #1.5 °C". This is to signify the goal of limiting global warming to a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celsius, a target recently set by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). 
 
The organizer said the postcard was a perfect lesson for adults instead of children, and sent a strong message to the world's political leaders that actions, rather than promises, need to be taken immediately to address global warming and climate change, otherwise both generations of today and of the future will suffer the consequences of climate change for a long time.
