Project Description: “A dive in the oceanic islands – a proposal for a children’s book.”
Approaching the topic of environmental preservation with children is a must for an education that is concerned with forming a more conscious and responsible next generation. Our proposal aims to present the Brazilian oceanic islands to children, highlighting their ecological and evolutionary importance. We will produce a children’s book, with copyrighted illustrations that will be distributed in public and private schools, as we see it can be a supplementary material in formal education.
