See what Last Chance to Paint does: Eden Project LIVE
Over 4000 children painted and learnt with us during the broadcast
"What I particularly like about artist John Dyer is that he takes very serious subjects and handles them with a lightness of touch which makes people not feel they are being preached at or made to feel as if they are guilty as sin or that we are necessarily going to hell in a handcart today, but there is always a slight warning that it might happen tomorrow."
Sir Tim Smit, KBE.
Co-founder of the Eden Project, Executive Vice Chair of Eden Project Ltd and Executive Chairman of Eden Project International Ltd.
Children and Schools are invited to ‘travel’ with the Eden Project’s artist in residence, John Dyer and musician Martha-Lilly Dyer. We are exploring endangered plants, peoples, places and animals using visual art and music to connect children to these subjects in memorable ways so they become aware of what we stand to lose.
Art is a universal language that can connect people and creates a reflective space for questioning and learning. We want children to not only ‘travel’ with us but to create their own piece of art inspired by our journeys to be exhibited in the WorldGallery.online alongside John Dyer’s art and art created by indigenous children from around the world.
Small changes by individuals can make a BIG difference to our planet.
How can your children make a positive difference today?
Eat locally produced and in season fruits & vegetables. Swap meat for plant based 'meat' & 'dairy' products. Read the ingredients on products like cakes and biscuits and try to avoid products with palm oil in as that fuels rainforest and wildlife devastation and conflict.
If we ate less fish (wild & farmed) the world's oceans could start to recover. The large part of the plastic pollution in the ocean is from the fishing industry. Fishing nets kill marine life such as dolphins, whales, turtles and sharks and fish are also wild animals that need to be protected.
Move to a more plant based diet as the meat industry creates vast amounts of greenhouse gases and causes rainforest deforestation. We could reduce our climate change impact by around 18% by removing meat, which is far bigger than removing flights.
Buy good quality products that last, avoid fast fashion, shop in charity shops. When a family car is purchased try and avoid heavy inefficient SUV vehicles and buy electric if possible. Start to save and invest rather than buying things you might not need.
