The images displayed share the joy and learning from only a few printed copies of the book in Buea, Cameroon. Working with our local partner and educator, Forbi Perise Eyong Nyosai, we are launching the "Catch Them Young with Arts" project. Our goal is to provide the conscious coloring book along with art materials to 300 students in underpriveliged communities in Cameroon. Our target is children between the ages of 2 and 12 years old and we aim to reach 300 homes during this summer holiday (July to September). With the help of local teachers and institutions, we believe that this project can have a lasting impact on the community by inspiring a new breed of ocean leaders.
Oceanic Global's NYC Hub in collaboration with artist Kalina Juzwiak created a conscious coloring book to spread awareness about the issue of marine plastic pollution in a fun and engaging way for young people. This book serves as a reminder that artistic expression and creative communication play a crucial role in the ocean conservation movement, and that our next generation of ocean leaders is engaged and dedicated to finding solutions. This book can be used as an engaging educational tool around the world in order to teach young people about marine plastic pollution and how we can all be a part of the solution.
Due to COVID-19, most children are not in school or in their classrooms. Art and creativity has the power to inspire us to love and want to protect the planet. By using fun facts and creative coloring, the book aims to educate the younger generation about plastic pollution in our oceans. The book can be completed from anywhere and can serve as a fun and inspired educational tool.
