After having developed his conservation career in such exciting places as Bolivia, Mexico, Ecuador (including the Galápagos islands) and Colombia Alan decided in August 2018 to quit his job and launch himself 100% towards his first true vocation: having by now published three full-length comic books respectively about natural history, evolution and climate change Alan's dream is to become a best-selling author of comics that combine fiction, non-fiction, humour, satire and adventure in order to educate, entertain, and inspire personal engagement towards bettering our world.
As the more environmentally aware celebrate the 50th Earth Day around the world, I am inspired to share this page from my educational comic book, The Adventures of Polo the Bear. In this scene, Polo enjoys seeing an actual climate change solution: roof gardens. Using plants (rather than greenhouse gas-emitting air conditioners) Leila and her grandma not only cool down their entire apartment building, which being in Cairo, Egypt, is a big deal, but they also provide food for their family and sell the surplus to neighbors, thereby also ticking the box of empowering women and girls, a key element in achieving sustainability and social justice.
