E033. Climate Storyteller Alan J. Hesse, championing climate action in the Global South
Show Notes

Is it all too late? Too late to save the planet from human-induced climate impacts?
Keeping up with global events: flooding, hurricanes, wildfires...can take us down the rabbit hole of doom and gloom, even inducing Climate anxiety.

Acknowledging the gravity of the situation, conservation biologist, educator and author-illustrator Alan Hesse uses his graphic novels as a storytelling vehicle to empower children for climate action.

Education can be entertaining. Through caricature, Alan champions the cause of the Global South, spotlighting activism and climate solutions originating in these directly affected areas. As a global citizen he believes the whatever the talent or passion one posesses can be used for a higher purpose, and what better purpose than the wellbeing of People and Planet.

Alan is the author and illustrator of five non-fiction graphic novels for middle grade children, among which his main ongoing focus is the Captain Polo series about climate change. Alan is also the author of 3 climate change-themed picture books for children within the 6-8 age range.
