Tread Lightly: Visualising Footprints
Each year, young people around the world are encouraged to submit creative reflections on the theme of ecological footprints and climate change to the annual Tread Lightly “Imprints” Art Contest.
Submissions can include, but are not limited to:
• Computer Graphics
• Flash Animation
• Mixed media
Keeping in mind the importance of treading lightly, students should aim to produce artwork that has minimal ecological impact and strive to incorporate re-used or recycled materials at every opportunity.
Time Required: 1 class period
Students will reflect on the concepts of ecological footprints and climate change and will be able to communicate their understanding of these concepts through a visual representation.
• Distribute the “Imprints” Art Contest guidelines (available on the Tread Lightly project page), or have students view them online.
• Allow students to break into teams or work independently to brainstorm creative concepts. Both individuals and groups will be able to contribute submissions to the contest.
• Time permitting, have students start the production process.
