Climate Changers - Kids thinking big about sustainability

Children's art exhibition and short film

Come and explore big artworks about sustainability created by some of
our state's smallest citizens. 


In this special exhibition, discover the brilliant climate change
solutions of 9-11 year olds from Milton State School. Through their
unique artworks these young minds remind us that creative thinking is a
must in these times of change. Wise beyond their years, the children's
insights and creative solutions have to be seen to be believed. 


Workshops were run at Milton State School to teach children about
climate change and encourage them to re-imagine our response to it, by
creating artworks illustrating possible solutions. The results are a
fresh contribution to the climate change discussion and a poignant
reminder of our responsibility to future generations.


We have mostly agreed that climate change is happening. But it's big and
what can we do about it anyway? Can we build a machine to fix it? We
need to work together but how do you encourage cooperation? The
children's artwork responses are sure to surprise and amaze you. Be
prepared to look at the world in a completely different way.
