I was reading an article on the MCL website while looking for engaging projects to do at school with kids and teachers. I came across this article on making a massive quilt, with pictures of the rainforest on.
The idea is to raise awareness of the rainforest in the local area, even if its miles away from the forest.
Doing this would generate quite a bit of local media coverage for the schools involved and for local business if they sponsored a square. It also tells everyone that we can all do our bit to save the forests whether we are at school, run a local business or run a country! We can all make a difference.
I don’t think it needs to be a stitched quilt. It could be a technology project to get images and piece them together as an image on a website. It could be a science project to plant a patchwork quilt in the garden that looks like a map of the world! What ever it is, make it a big effort and get the local media interested!
Why not generate a local media campaign! If you need any help with it, give us a shout and we’ll help with media contacts.
