“Click It, Sketch It: An Adventure with Migratory Birds 2020 Edition ”
Featuring A Storytelling Session for Children
World Migratory Bird Day 2020 aims to raise awareness on the importance of ecological connectivity for migratory birds and complement the efforts of Convention on Migratory Species to promote ecological connectivity and functionality, international cooperation and the conservation of migratory species within the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
In line with this year’s theme for World Migratory Bird Day (Birds Connect Our World) and the EAAFP theme for 2019-2020 (Flyways – Connecting People and Migratory Waterbirds), the SCPW will again conduct the “Click It, Sketch It” activity with three sessions: (1) storytelling session for children, (2) sketching of migratory birds by artists, and (3) bird and nature photography.
The SCPW would like to invite the ASEAN Centre on Biodiversity to be a partner in the storytelling activity. The storytelling activity is designed for grade schoolers that will revolve around the importance of migratory birds, the threats to their very existence and instill in their young minds that people can do something to help protect wildlife and their habitats. Due to the current health risk, the session will be conducted via online platform.
- To instill the importance of migratory birds and conservation in the minds of young children, and that people can do something to help protect them and their habitats.
- To produce a storybook that can be used as a communication tool in protecting migratory birds.
