SunChild Eco Club

The SunChild Eco Club project is aimed at raising children’s awareness for environmental issues, at the same time providing them with tools to tackle those.  Working with professional filmmakers, photographers, journalists and environmentalists, who appear as mentors rather than trainers, children identify environmental and social issues specific to their communities, and learn to make visual stories out of them. On a long-term level, the project helped to counter the negative trends of social fragmentation and alienation from nature and community by helping the children find out by themselves the importance of reconnection to the natural and cultural world of which they are a part.
