The OECS/GCCA iLAND Resilience Project is launching a major Climate Change and Sustainable Land Management awareness initiative in the form of whiteboard animations.
Climate Change is one of the most topical issues globally and it is a major concern for Small Island Developing Sates like the OECS Region. The 2017 Hurricane season was unfortunately a wakeup call for the region and because of this the need to educate the general population is of utmost importance.
The iLAND Resilience Project states that the video animations creatively break down and explain the technical and sometimes difficult to understand terminology of Climate Change and Sustainable Land Management. Officials attached to the project say that the whiteboard animations aim to reach a wide spectrum of the population, in particular the young and active audience.
A key component of the OECS/GCCA iLAND Resilience Project is education and changing the way we think about the environment. The whiteboard animation zooms in on issues of food security, water security, and national land instruments like building codes.
The Climate Change and Sustainable Land Management whiteboard animations are being aired on media outlets across the region. They can also we be viewed at www.ilandresilience.org.
