"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."

YOUR CHILDREN CAN 'TRAVEL' WITH US

By creating a piece of their own art they will really connect to the natural world

'TRAVEL'

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.

QUESTION

Using the internet and satellite links your children can ask questions before, during and after the expeditions.

CREATE

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?

More Plants

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.

Less Fish

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.

Less Meat

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.

Less Stuff

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.
