SOL’s work of bringing climate action and socio emotional learning in classrooms through arts-based sessions was featured by Mint Lounge.
The two important aspects linked with climate action that SOL focuses on in addition to knowledge and awareness are emotion and action. Talking about an activity that asks children to write an essay titled, What Plant Are You? where the children pick a plant from their locality that reflects their character, Jigyasa tells Lounge, “It’s a way of connecting with nature through self-exploration. Knowledge about climate change is easier (to find and spread); what needs to be focused on is children’s connection with nature, which is what we do,”
Thank you to all of you at the Rainmatter Foundation for helping us create safe spaces where children can look at climate action from the lens of artistic expression, advocacy and agency.
