ABOUT THE ANANSE CLIMATE CHANGE EDUCATION PROJECT

While Climate conditions worsen in the country, the gap on the basic knowledge of Climate Change and its consequences remain unknown to many especially the next generation of leaders. The focus of this educational project is to address the ability to respond to the climate crisis. Our Climate Change Education Kit aims to contribute to preparing children in Ghana for these climate realities. Using Ananse storytelling, interactive tools and activities, school-aged children will learn about climate change and its consequences. . Through this educational toolkit we aim to educate children on the Climate, Climate Change and related topics through storytelling already familiar to them.With the stories and activities created for children, we hope to spark a way of thinking about themselves and the nature surrounding them.

As part of making the Kit accessible and used to its maximum best, facilitators will be trained on how to use the kit with children. Trained facilitators will be equipped with all they need to work with schools and interested organizations that work with children.

The Climate Education Kit features 10 original stories written and illustrated by Ghanaian writers and Illustrators. The stories were created during the Ananse Climate Fellowship. During the one-month co-creative program, the writer(s) and Illustrator(s) engaged in meetings with experts from the creative and climate sectors, assignments, brainstorming sessions, research and creative sessions. While engaging with the planned program, the creatives came up with their stories inspired by topics under Climate Change that they were exposed to during sessions with climate experts and creatives.
