Roots and Shoots is a youth-led movement which recognises that although kids may be small, through education and support, they have immense power to transform the future of our planet.
Where will all the penguins go is a musical performed by and created for children which tackles the underlying theme of climate change. The story follows the journey of two brothers into a future fractured by ecological crisis. It gives children an opportunity to learn and engage with the environmental issues facing our planet (the planet that they will one day inherit as the future generation). It is also a safe space to ask real questions about climate change.
‘It’s fun, it’s dark, it’s real, it’s current and it’s important,’
The musical is also part of a global awareness program, that is, after the show makes its global premier at the Sydney Fringe Festival, the producers intend to make the scripts and music available to children across the globe. This allows students to spread the message of environmental sustainability through a creative and engaging medium. It is the perfect example of care for people, animals and the environment that crosses national borders and language barriers!
