DRAW ME THE ECOLOGY
Our planet, and with it, all living species, are in real danger. The ecological emergency is such that we can no longer ignore it. The latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) sounds the alarm: the warming of temperatures beyond 1.5°C will have very serious consequences on the climate, species … The evidence is there, very palpable, and climate skeptics will soon run out of arguments. Unprecedented heat waves, deadly droughts, melting glaciers, rising waters, increasing natural disasters… Global warming is the major challenge of our generation and, we fear, of those yet to come. In addition, there are all the problems related to pollution, water scarcity, the use of pesticides in the agri-food industry… It is our health and our survival that are at stake! It is therefore time to act and to call on our governments and public authorities to take the problem head on.
This is why Cartooning for Peace, an international network of press cartoonists resolutely committed to the fight for the environment, has created a travelling exhibition “Draw me ecology” for secondary schools throughout France with the support of the MGEN.

LET’S DRAW PEACE AND DEMOCRACY
Omrane (Tunisia) – member of the Cartooning for peace network
“Let’s draw peace and democracy” is an original educational exhibition that relies on press drawings and humor to reflect the challenges and aspirations of Tunisian youth. It encourages the dissemination of a culture of peace, dialogue and democracy within the Citizenship Clubs of Tunisian high schools and colleges. It promotes the participation of young people and the promotion of human rights and freedom of expression in Tunisia. This project, launched in 2017, was carried out as part of the process of reforming the education system in Tunisia and the implementation of a national strategy for citizenship education carried by the Arab Institute for Human Rights and the Cartooning for Peace “Drawing for Peace and Democracy” program supported by the European Union.
