Georges Bitar – A Hero of Green Justice in Lebanon

Juliette

Anhand einer illustrierten Geschichte habe ich das Leben eines inspirierenden Mannes erzählt, der seine ganze Energie darauf verwendet hat, sich für grüne Gerechtigkeit einzusetzen.

Georges hat im Libanon ein Unternehmen für Abfallrecycling aufgebaut, das sich sowohl für die soziale Eingliederung als auch für die Umwelt einsetzt. 

Diese Geschichte versucht zu zeigen, dass wir alle Akteure einer besseren Welt sind, in der ökologischer und sozialer Fortschritt Hand in Hand gehen.

Growing up next to the cloud maker

Shamiso & Viviana

This story is realistic fiction and takes place in the First Nation Reserve Aamjiwnaang in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. It describes the life of residents living close to ‘Canada’s Toxic Chemical Valley’, where over 60 chemical plants and oil refineries sit in a 15-mile-wide section. The location in the past recorded the highest level of air pollution in a Canadian city. Factories have over the decades surrounded the reservation.

Growing up Next to the Cloud Maker aims to bring attention to the imbalanced levels of environmental injustice people of color and poor people experience. The story follows a day in the life of Aki, an Aamjiwnaang girl living on the First Nation Reserve Aamjiwnaang. It describes the impacts of the chemical plants and refineries on the everyday lives of its neighbours. In places where environmental injustice is occurring it is hard for the local people alone to overcome this injustice. Therefore, our approach for a solution was to make a children’s book that aims to help raise awareness to make people more sensitive to the topic, making them more likely to care and respond when seeing cases of environmental injustice.

Big Bright World

Hania

“Big Bright World” is a children’s book about a neurodiverse kid named Robin who can sometimes feel very overwhelmed in their urban environment. The term neurodiverse is an umbrella term that views neurobiological diversity as the result of normal human variation and asserts that neurological differences should be recognized and respected as a social category on par with gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and disability status. It is used to describe people with brains that are wired and function differently than the typical, or “neurotypical.” This includes people who are labeled with: dyspraxia, dyslexia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyscalculia, autistic spectrum, Tourette syndrome, etc. This book in particular focuses on neurodiverse people who experience sensory processing issues, or sensory overload. Sensory overload is a very uncomfortable feeling that happens when there is too much information to process at one time. It often occurs more easily in urban environments, as they have considerably more stimulation in comparison to green spaces. Cities without enough green space compound health problems for many marginalized people, the neurodiverse included. In this book, Robin experiences sensory overload in the city and compares it to how green spaces are not “too much.” Robin discovers more about their environment and themselves, and in doing so, finds a tool to help manage a confusing and scary experience. The target audience for this book are children aged five to eight.
