Echo Magazine - Volume One
Volume one is a 100 page “masterclass” of basic concepts. Future volumes would dive more specifically into climate change issues through a closer lens. This volume is broken into 7 chapters: an introduction, forests and the Amazon Rainforest, animals and extinction, the ocean and aquatic life, a short story, how to get involved, and finally food and gardening. Activities include coloring pages, emergency supply checklist, animal trading cards, and tips on starting your own garden.
Problem & Solution
Conversation about climate change is everywhere. It's on the news, radio, social media, and woven into our social culture. With good reason. The changing environment poses an overwhelming challenge for future generations. How might we approach the young people in our lives about climate change without causing nightmares and fear? My solution, based on interviews with educators, is using storytelling and illustration to relate potentially intimidating topics in a lighthearted, approachable way.
