Do you want to be part of a group of creatives working towardsmaking a change in the face of climate change? Join us! We are looking for creative writers and illustrators for our Ananse Climate Education project. In this project we are building a climate education kit that we spread in Ghana. The education focuses on preparing children for the future of climate change and being resilient. As part of this climate education kit, we want to create adventurous and modern day Ananse stories aimed at children in Ghana (8-11 years old). We are looking for bold and creative, out of the box thinkers to help us create and illustrate these stories. During the one-month Ananse Climate Fellowship, you will embark on a journey with inspiring speakers, musicians, artist and international climate experts to create the kit. It will be an educational and inspiring journey.
