Location

Situation

Climate Change is hitting SE Asia hard. Increased typhoon activity as well as droughts are becoming all the more common. The governments of SE Asia have a program that only goes as far as adaptation and mitigation, as opposed to action against rising temperature. Our aim is to involve young people at an early age to better understand the causes and effects of Climate Change, so they can themselves generate a culture of knowledge, volunteerism and activism, debate and dialogue and finally action.

Solution

Through exhibition and printed material, our project will be used in schools, public spaces and tour SE Asia, beginning in the Mekong region. By producing a series of easy to read and engaging cartoon stories, developed through participatory practise and workshops, and in partnership with British Council and local NGOs, we aim to instigate Climate Change education throughout the region, benefitting those who will deal with consequences well into the future.
