Plans for the Planet: Olaf Breuning for Kids

Nature and Us

In a forest-inspired environment, children draw trees to help save the animals and their habitat.

Our Plans for the Planet

Animal characters chat about contemporary issues and encourage children to think big about their world and share their ideas.

Just a Person

Children create digital self-portraits that might say something about their interests, their likes or dislikes, or what life is like in the year 2021.

‘I wish for children to take away refreshing thoughts with them, and be more motivated to make “plans for our planet” – hopefully, good ones!’
