The two episodes highlight how youths play an essential role in solving environmental issues.
Nanyang Technological University’s (NTU) Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) has released Earth Girl Mission, two three-minute anime-styled animated episodes highlighting youth’s role to play in solving environmental issues.
The two episodes released feature educational stories about how the Earth is changing in response to humanity’s actions through the perspective of an 11-year-old girl.
The two episodes were written and directed by Liz Courtney, an award-winning social entrepreneur and documentary-maker. As the Artist in Residence for The Earth Observatory of Singapore, she also wrote and directed Changing Ocean Asia.
The episodes were also made in collaboration with NTU’s School of Art, Design and Media.
The first episode, Earth Girl Ocean, focuses on the importance of the role the ocean plays in Earth’s health, and how important coral reefs are in supporting life on earth.
The second episode, Earth Girl Nature, explores how nature, including mangrove forests, wetlands and waterways can contribute to lessen the impact of climate change through interconnected systems.
Both episodes end with a call-to-action for the audience to make a difference through actions such as conserving water and reducing plastic use.
