New anime series launched to engage youth to take climate action

The Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) at NTU launched a new anime series titled Earth Girl Mission on Friday (7 Oct), which aims to inspire youth to be part of the climate solution.

Inspired by the original Earth Girl video game created by EOS, the 2-part series is an action-oriented educational story about how the earth is changing, seen through the eyes of an 11-year-old girl.

The anime series premiered at the Science Centre Singapore on Friday and will be screened as part of its Earth Alive exhibition for a limited duration.  

The first episode in the series Earth Girl Ocean focuses on the important role the ocean plays in supporting a healthy planet, and the impact of our actions on marine life. The second episode Earth Girl Nature explores how nature, including mangrove forests and waterways, can contribute to climate impacts reduction through interconnected systems.

The series was written and directed by Liz Courtney, Artist in Residence at EOS, in collaboration with the School of Art, Design and Media (ADM).
