To celebrate Earth Day, Ecolution, our climate action podcast, commissioned the animation students of Coláiste Dhúlaigh College of Further Education to create seven bespoke cartoons.
Audio clips from Ecolution were given to the students and then they were allowed to create whatever visuals they thought fit the bill, Creature Comforts Style.
What they delivered is a glorious celebration of nature, the outdoors and the place kids have found for play and reflection.
They are all up on RTÉ Player right now, or you can enjoy them one by one below!
