New Leaf is an interactive website that showcases three different endangered animals through the medium of animation. Meet our three characters in their natural habitat as we show you what struggles and issues they face on a daily basis.

Our project tackles many issues like deforestation and hunting. All of which educates young people on the field of sustainability, after all they are the next generation that must maintain the environment.

WHAT WE DO

WWF's 2018 Living Planet Report states that 60% of all animal populations has been wiped out since 1970.

The UN has stated that Ireland is failing on 'human rights obligations', following the 2018 report from the Climate Change Advisory Council.

The worlds youth are realising its now or never for action towards climate change, children staged mass walkouts all over the world in relation to their governments approach to the topic.

WHY WE DO IT
3 / 3

Using visual aids of 2D and 360 animation video, New Leaf offers a relatively new way in learning environmentally friendly practices for our target audience of 6 to 8 year olds.

Use New Leaf as an educational tool within the classroom, at home, or mobily to teach young people on the right way to treat our world.

The activities section involves fun quizzes, games, and educational videos to develop your young ones with the skills needed for a greener future.
