WHEE partnered with Kent County Schools

Share

Last Fall, WHEE partnered with Kent County Schools, community organizations, and individuals to create the Make a Movement Project, a performance art project about climate change and the effects of heat-trapping gases on our planet. Please check out the video that shows the community’s involvement in the project and events.

WHEE’s Make a Movement project is now creating a parachute with the First Day Friends Meeting of Washington, DC and facilitating leaders to create parachute projects at Salisbury University, in Stamford, Conn., Pomona, NY, Sunderland, Mass., Benga, Malawi, and El Menzel, Morocco.

Inspired by the AIDS quilt, first displayed in 1987 to raise awareness about the disease, the call for Parachutes For The Planet is for individuals and communities to create their own parachute to raise awareness of the effects of climate change and living sustainably. All parachutes will be gathered for an exhibition on the Mall in Washington DC and then toured around the US and internationally. Check out the website for details.

Director of WHEE, Hope Clark, is working with Allen Fawsett, the Chief at the Environmental Protection Agency, Climate Economic Branch who’s team wrote the Paris Agreement and created the archived EPA Student Guide to Global Warming used by the Make a Movement project in Kent County, MD.

Perhaps you know an environmental club or group in your neighborhood who would like to participate? For more information and support contact@wheelbarrowproductions.org
