How to Save the Earth with a Sketch

For kids and adults — learn how to create a visual solution for real-world change using your pencil, a piece of paper and a few great ideas.

“What do you want the Earth to be like for yourself, your family and friends… and in the long run, for your kids?”

We believe in the power of a few simple sketches and some creative thinking to solve problems and create a better world. With a piece of paper or your favorite sketching app, a pen and your imagination, you can come up with new ideas to make a difference. Whether you’re a kid or an adult, whether you want to help climate change, preserve wildlife, create new products that enrich life, or solve local crises… you can absolutely do it starting with a sketch.

Our team at Concepts paired with Earth Endeavours’ International #WritingforNature Short Story Contest to create a conservation-based visual thinking guide to show you how to take an idea and turn it into a plan for helping our Earth. Follow along with this guide to learn simple problem solving techniques and find a great solution for any idea.
