Moral of the Story: Designing Eco-Ethics Education to Instill Environmental Values in Our Children
The Champs for Our Environment children’s book series aims to instill environmental conservation values in children through storytelling and eco-ethics principles. This program delves into the journey of developing the series, where impactful design plays a leading role in addressing environmental, educational, and social issues.
This program underscores the significance of effective and engaging design in communicating complex ideas, which is pivotal in creating a lasting psychological impact. It showcases how design can be used to convey environmental messages and inspire behavioral change through a storytelling approach. This contributes to the larger goal of promoting sustainable and impactful design solutions. By combining resourcefulness, creative purpose, and an environmental focus, design can contribute to Singapore’s aspiration of becoming a more environmentally conscious nation.
Through a 45-minute expert panel, participants will be engaged in conversations around the power of storytelling, child psychology and modern education, as well as eco-ethics. This is followed by an extended Q&A session where participants can take part in discussions and idea sharing.
