Patrimonito mobilizes against climate change: A new cartoon for World Heritage Education

As part of the cartoon series entitled “Patrimonito's World Heritage Adventures”, the new episode introduces the Great Barrier Reef, a Pacific World Heritage site since 1981. It presents the negative impact of global warming on the biological diversity of the coral reef system.

Cartoon storyboards were chosen and professionally animated following a competition among ASPnet secondary school pupils.

The cartoon targets students at primary and secondary school level worldwide. It is a useful teaching tool to involve young people in reflecting on the issue of climate change and its impact on World Heritage and to promote sustainable behaviors.

The new episode was presented during the International Seminar on Climate Change Education at UNESCO Paris, 27-29 July 2009. All Patrimonito episodes can be downloaded on the website underneath.
