On this site you can find an overview of the different stages the Comic Book goes through.
The creation of a comic book about the impact of plastic waste on the climate as well as the organization of Planet Earth Days in collaboration with partners will contribute to raise students/teachers/staff and community environmental awareness, consequently contributing to improve their environmental behaviour/actions in their daily lives.
The comic book covers partners’ needs to implement and intensify the process of digitalisation combined with the use of digital devices and different computer programmes and apps. The creation of the comic will also cover creative aspects and language acquisition.
The project will also focus on the creation of a comic book. The participants will use digital equipment and various computer programmes and applications to carry out and intensify their work. Online tutorials and lessons will be provided by the cartoonists (specialists) to correctly use the equipment and applications
In each participating country, the comic book will be distributed with 100 copies. Through sponsorship, we want to scale up this distribution after the project. The comic book will also remain available online. We expect at least 10000 viewers (readers) after the project of the comic book.
The Belgian school will be responsible for the comic book as they have contacts with the supported company (illustrators) that will take this comic book to a higher professional level. Belgian comics have played an important role in the development of European comics in the past. As one of the few arts where Belgium has had an international and enduring impact in the 20th century, comics are known to be "an integral part of Belgian culture".
Limited paper version of the comic book. If a partner school opts for a larger print run, it will encourage external stakeholders (such as companies, municipal authorities, environmental organisations) to finance this initiative. The comic book is only available in an English version. If a partner school chooses a version in native language, it will encourage external stakeholders (such as companies, municipalities, environmental organisations) to finance this initiative.
he comic book is the showpiece of the whole project. That is why a professional team of illustrators was asked to support the development of the comic book. The distribution of the comic book is a very important part at the end of the project. Getting stakeholders and sponsors to finance the comic book is important in order to reach a large target group. With sufficient funding, the comic book can be distributed to schools all over the country and we can activate children, large and small, in an accessible way about environmental issues and the corresponding awareness. After all, we want to make European citizens aware of the consequences of pollution in a comical and accessible way.
